HIS may seem an odd place for "last words" ; but in all 
books the first section, containing usually title, dedication 
and table of contents, is the last part printed, since it can 
readily be understood that some of it could not be given 
until the book was otherwise completed. 

This is also the place where omissions and errors are sometimes 
noted, having been detected too late for correction elsewliere. 

In the line of omissions, the writer wants to call attention to a 
fact confirmatory of the connection with the Weiler family of Freys. 
A visit to the Freysville cemetery after nearly half of this book was 
printed, revealed the existence of Conrad Frey's tombstone, which 
recorded his death on Feb. 17, 1800, aged 84 years. The Weiler 
Conrad was bom March 10, 171 5. 

In the Explanatory Chapter an important explanation is omit- 
ted. Where a subject is married the second time, only his number 

is given, followed by a dash. See page 142, where 161253 

refers to the second marriage of I'homas Robert Pearce 



Metzel, and 16 12 denotes the second marriage 

of his grandfather, Thomas Metzel.

is sincerely sought.

HEN the making of books was not as common as 
it is now, it was customary for the author to give 
some reason or excuse for thrusting upon a long- 
suffering pubhc a new work; though everybody 
suspected that it was the hope of Hterary fame or financial reward 
that prompted the deed. Such apology usually appeared in the 
beginning of the book as a "Preface" or "Introduction." Though 
the custom has fallen into disuse during late years, the writer 
deems it fitting that he should state the purpose of this volume. 

The Inspiration. 

The writer first became acquainted with "family records" 
through his intimate association^ with the late E. W. Spangler, 
Esq., whose work "Spangler Families" is one of the most complete 
genealogical and local historical books ever written. It was then 
that a Frey book was dreamed of ; but pressure of business interests, 
and the discovery that not one of the living relatives even knew 
the name of the great-grandfather, put a stop to any work in that 
direction before there was even a beginning. 

Ten years later, in a business way, the writer came to know of 
another genealogical work, of a much more modest character,* 
wherein the compiler simply published the names of his grand- 
father's descendants. Then came the idea that what a railroad 
man, with limited time, could do to preserve the memory of his 
grandfather, might be done by one who had his evenings as his

10 INTRODUCTORY. 

own, by reason of his profession had access to court records, and 
through his daily vocation could readily superintend the mechanical 
part of the undertaking. So the Rubicon was crossed, and the 
attempt to discover and publish in book form the descendants of 
Samuel Frey, the writer's grandfather, was inaugurated. 

Anticipation and Realization. 
When first beginning the work, the idea was, as Samuel Frey 
had nine children who became heads of families, to get some one in 
each branch to furnish the information concerning that particular 
line, and then the writer would simply have to be the editor, 
arranging the data thus furnished, procuring as much of the earlier 
history of the Freys as he could without going to too much 
trouble, and preparing the book for the printer. The scheme was 
very good ; but when it came to actual practice in only two of the 
lines was it successful; in the others the writer had to get the 
statistics himself. 

Starting out with the grandfather idea, the thought came that 
as two or three Freys were known that were not of the grandfather 
stock, though closely related, it might be as well to spread the 
benefits of this publication to others of the kin. This missionary 
spirit existed before the magnitude of the task involved in getting 
all the facts pertaining to the children of Samuel Frey alone was 
fully appreciated. Once started on this line, there was no valid 
reason for not including all the brothers and sisters of Samuel. 
So there inevitably followed the conclusion to make the book not 
simply the story of Samuel Frey's descendants; but the record of 
George Frey (Samuel's father) and his posterity. 

In the glow of self-appreciation that this altruistic resolution 
aroused, there came the thought of another line of Freys (or Frys, 
as they wrote it), with whom the writer has been acquainted since 
childhood, one of them having been his first school teacher, about 
whose connection with Samuel's stock there was some doubt, and it 
was determined to settle this question, once for all. The result 
was a step still further back into the past, and the great-great- 



GENESIS. II 

grand fnther of the writer appe^irs as the ])rof!;QmU >r of the several 
thousand persons recorded in tliis vohinie. When it is noted that 
four of Gottfried Prey's children are taken up in this work; that 
these four fiirnished eighteen of his grandchiklren. of whom the 
writer's grandfather was one — it will give some idea of the differ- 
ence in the work first planned and the lalx)r actually expended. 

It was also expected that every one addressed and asked for 
information w^ould cheerfully and promptly gi\'e all in his power, 
considering th;it a work of this kind is never for the profit of the 
author, but for the benefit of the whole kin ; of just as much 
interest to the one questioned as to the interrogator. It was cjuite a 
blow to one's faith in common courtesy and unselfishness to dis- 
cover how many were loth to go to the trouble of writing a letter, 
or even to answer when personally visited ; apparently unwilling to 
do anything for nothing;'^ all of which not only delayed the 
completion of the work, but made the task so much the 
harder, and the final results so much the more imperfect. 
No one more regrets the omission of three of Gottfried's children, 
possibly a half dozen of his grandchildren, and many of his de- 
scendants further down the line, than does the writer ; but the fear 
that he himself might not li\-e to finish it, or that many of those 
^\•ho had cheered him on in the undertaking might not live to see it 
completed, determined him to send the book forth in its present 
state. It is not as complete as he expected it to be; it is more full 
than he intended it to be when he first planned it; and not all of its 
sins of omission can be charged to him. Such as it is, it is the only 
book of the descendants of Gottfried Frey yet published. Should 
some one more capable ever take up the task and publish a more 
perfect record of the progeny of the Pioneer lad. no one will 
congratulate him more heartily than one who has spent over three 
years at the work and fully appreciates all that it involves.* 

^Correspondence with other persons engaged in comijiling family records, 
and the reading of published genealogies, has taught the writer that this 
churlishness is not confined to the descendants of Gottfried Frey. 

iAn extensive and virgin field lies before the one who will take up the line 
of Conrad Frey. 



12 INTRODUCTORY. 

Getting the Facts. 

The actual labor of a project like this may be divided into 
three parts. The first of these is, of course, getting the information. 
This, again, may be classified into two groups : concerning the past 
and relating to the present. 

In older countries, or even in our own country in future years, 
the work of the genealogist is comparatively easy. Where the law 
requires the recording of births and deaths, where marriages 
licenses are issued and records kept, it is not so difficult to trace 
out any particular line. But such things are of very recent exist- 
ence in York County, or in any county of the United States for that 
matter: and of course the further back the more difficult. The 
early church records content themselves with the actual church 
membership; then, a little later, appear births, if the children are 
baptized ; then, still later, deaths and marriages are given. Of 
course, where parents were not church members, no such records 
are to be found. 

A source of information not confined to church membership 
are the court records, administrations, wills, inquests of real estate 
and deeds and releases ; but these also have their limitations. If a 
man has no property there is no administration; if he has no real 
estate there are no inquests, deeds or releases, and here again is 
shown one of the inconveniences of being poor. Gottfried Frey 
died a man of means ; but one of his sons died without leaving any 
estate to pass through the court house records, so nothing could be 
learned of his children by that means. Fortunately, however, for 
the purposes of this book, a brother-in-law of this particular son 
died childless and intestate, leaving quite valuable real estate, and 
by means of the inquest in the partition thereof the writer was 
able to trace all his father's uncles and aunts, something which 
would otherwise have been impossible. 

Owing to the almost universal custom of women taking the 
surnames of their husbands, daughters are much harder to trace 
than sons. Of the two daughters of Gottfried who grew to 
maturity one was already married at the time of the writing of his 



GENESIS. 13 

will, ;in(I while he mcnlions that fact he fails to say to whom she 
was married. An inspection of a ehnrch marriaicfe record gave the 
name of her hushand ; hut whether the other daurjhter ever married, 
or. if she did. to whom, is one of the thint^s the writer has been 
unable to find out. Tie may have seen her name hundreds of times 
in his search, hut there was no way of reco.ernizine^ it. This is one 
of the things that marriai^e license records \\\\] make easy for 
future genealogists. 

The newspapers of tlie present da\- arc a fruitful source of 
information, especially such as. in their obituary notices, give the 
names of siu-\iving relatives. A score of years ago this was not 
done, and fifty years ago they were very chary about publishing 
deaths at all. The early papers of York County gave more room 
to essays and political dissertations than to local news or mortuary 
records. 

Tradition is not to be despised as a source of information ; but 
it must always be taken with a grain of salt. Verbal communica- 
tions may easily become distorted, and age makes the line between 
truth and error so indistinct as to render accuracy impossible. In 
other pages in this work reference is made to tradition, and what 
part it played in revealing the past. 

The writer is indebted, also, to the "Spangler Families." 
heretofore referred to. to Pennsyhania Archives. York County 
Histories, Rupp's 30.000 names, and the Pennsylvania German 
Society, for some of his earlier information. The work done 
by many of these historians was both conscientious and accurate. 
and has served to preserve for the use of future historians and 
genealogists facts which otherwise \vould have been utterly lost. He 
feels devoutly thankful that through the courtesies of the York 
County Historical Society he has had access to some works of 
whose very existence he w\as unaware, wherein he found facts 
which proved corner stones in the erection of his genealogical 
structure. The formation and maintenance of societies of this 
nature is a work w^ell w^orthy the time and attention of men who 
have the leisure and the means to devote thereto. 



14 INTRODUCTORY. 

Concerning the present, there were two ways of acquiring" 
facts ; by personal interview and through correspondence. Quite 
a number of the kin live in the city or immediate vicinity, and 
these were, of course, called upon ; but the great majority are at a 
distance, and the number of letters written runs into the thousands. 
Unfortunately, not all of those written to replied, and trips afoot, 
by steam, trolley and vehicle, were numerous. In all but a few 
instances the inquirer was courteously received, and his impertinent 
questions cheerfully answered. Those who were too far away to 
be visited and who neglected to answer have been omitted, except 
in the few cases where the information was obtained from another 
source. In many instances second and even third letters were 
necessary to produce desired results, and the writer feels that he 
has done all that could be reasonably expected to make this record 
complete. 

Having had the question asked several times, and having 
himself experienced a similar curiosity when reading other genea- 
logical works, a more detailed account of how the various branches 
of the family were discovered is given as such divisions are taken 
up in their proper order. It is believed they Avill serve to relieve 
the monotony of dry statistics, and prove an aid to such readers 
as may be tempted to engage in a similar work. To all such the 
writer bids Godspeed, believing that the task of collating and pre- 
serving historical information, though it be of but a single family, 
is worthy the best endeavor of any man. 

Paying the Fiddler. 
The second important matter in the publication of a "family 
book" is paying for it. Once in a while there happens the combi- 
nation of a man with both the will and the means ; but usually the 
first is easier to find than the latter. Many printers and book- 
binders throughout the country can produce hundreds of copies of 
books which the author was surely going to pay as soon as they 
were finished, since there would be no trouble at all in selling 
them; and the attics and storerooms of many authors who paid 



(;I':ni-:sis. 15 

their publisliinfj^ l)ills are filled with unsold copies. Of course, the 
wise man usually endeavors to secure subscriptions before beg-inning 
the actual work of publication; but fre(iuently, after about fifty per 
cent, of the estimated cost has been apparently provided for, he 
goes ahead, confident of being able to raise the balance. Then 
occurs the two-fold process that brings financial difficulty; the 
cost is greater than was expected, and the last half of the income 
does not materialize as easily as was hoped. 

When the author first started on the "Grandfather" iclea. he 
interviewed a few of the grandsons of Samuel Frey. and received 
encouragement sufficient to justify him in beginning the work. 
When the line was widened, the cost grew out of all proportion 
to the people who were brought within the scope of the book, and 
if the response of those most closely related to the original object 
of research had not been unexpectedly liberal, there would be a good- 
sized deficit to be met. This extra efifort on the part of some of 
Gottfried's descendants may be principally attributable to the fact 
that those still bearing the name of Frey are naturally more inter- 
ested in a Frey book than such whose connection is not at once 
apparent, and who may have to go back several generations to 
show that they are really concerned therein ; and it is also possible 
that the latter class, more distantly related to the writer, may have 
had less confidence in his integrity or his ability to produce a 
volume worth paying for. In fact, some persons were very chary 
of furnishing any information, to say nothing of signing any sub- 
scriptions, because they feared "a skin game." 

It would really have been amusing, had it not been rather 
mortifying, to find that others who answered requests for informa- 
tion very promptly, became as dumb as the grave when written to 
for subscriptions to the work. Of course, that was a privilege 
they had ; but at the low ])rice at whicli tliis volume has been offered 
it seems that every descendant of the pioneer lad should have in 
his possession a copy ; and that there could hardly be one so poor 
as not to be able to procure one. It has been the aim of the writer 
to make the price low, with the idea of having information 



i6 INTRODUCTORY. 

procured at the expense of so much labor put into the hands of 
every one who should be interested. If possible, he would be only 
too happy to do this; and to the extent that anyone who really 
would like this book is unable to get it, the writer feels that his 
efforts have been in vain. 

The last step in the work is the delivery of the book and the 
receipt of the price. The writer steadfastly refrained from 
soliciting payment in advance of publication, preferring to run the 
risk of some losses himself rather than have anyone say that they 
had been defrauded, if, perchance, through death or other causes, 
the work should never be issued. He sincerely trusts that none of 
Gottfried Frey's descendants will find themselves in the position of 
being unable to pay for the book after they have once subscribed 
for the same; it would be a position unpleasant for the writer and 
even more unpleasant for the subscriber. 

For personal reasons and for the sake of being able to say 
that this was one of the few genealogical books that has not been 
a source of loss to the publisher, it is hoped that not only all who 
subscribed therefor will be able to secure their copies; but that 
many of the descendants of Gottfried Frey will avail themselves of 
this opportunity to learn whence they came and what manner of 
men their forefathers were, for it is unlikely that the chance will 
ever come again. 

Qui Bono ? 
There were a few with whom the writer came in contact who 
looked upon the undertaking as labor wasted. One described it as 
"Nonsense," another said his children were all registered, and a 
third thought it more important that time be devoted to having 
one's name recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life than in the Frey 
book. To the latter assertion the writer adds a hearty "Amen;" 
but fails to see what is to prevent the acquisition of both these 
desirable records. That man must in truth be all for self who gives 
no thought to his ancestry ; who never stops to think what manner 
of men were those who are responsible for his appearance in this,

world; who never wonders from where he has received this 
tendency or that trait in his character; who, reading the history 
of his country, never asks whether any of his forehears played the 
part of men in the upbuilding of the country, in the strife with 
the wilderness, the savage or the enemy. That we may have some 
ancestors of whom the less said the better, is not to be denied ; but 
there is also the glorious compensation that some were men to be 
proud of, men whose part in the grand drama being played was no 
mean one, men who endured toil and privation and peril that we 
of the present day might lixe in safety, with none to molest or 
make us afraid. And the mothers of the past, those sturdy German 
dames, who were true helpmeets to their husbands, whose relaxa- 
tion from household toils consisted of work in the fields, who spun 
and wove, washed and cooked, sewed and knit, from early morn 
till late at night, yet withal found time to bear and rear, not one or 
two, but a dozen or more of healthy sons and daughters to rise 
up in after years and call them blessed — who would begrudge the 
little effort required to preserve their names and features for the 
coming generations to know and love? 




From "Die Alte Zeite," INI. W. Fisher, York, Pa. 



Ubc jfte^s. 




CITIZEN of York^ who has traveled extensively in his 
time, and has had the good fortune to visit the town in 
Germany from whence his ancestors came, was asked 
by the writer, w^hether he ever met any Freys. "Not in 
Germany;" was the reply; "but plenty of them in Switzerland."" 
The German name had led the writer to look for a German origin; 
and this theory seemed born out by the arrival of Tobias among 
"The Palatinates," and the fact that Heinrich Frey came from 
Alsace. There is also a record in Christ Lutheran church, of 
York, of a Mrs. Smith, "born a Frey," who came from "a town in 
Germany." 

The discovery of Kaspar Frey in Udorf, Switzerland, does 
not necessarily mean that the Freys are not of Germanic origin. 
Situated as it is, Switzerland is the meeting place of three 
nationalities, German, Italian and French, and it can be seen how 
easily a family could move from any one of these countries into 
the mountain Republic. 

The Name. 

After all, it matters little whether German or Swiss ; the 
etymolog}^ of the name shows that the family was composed of 
free men in the days when the majority of men were peasants or 
serfs. It was the fact of their being free, something out of the 
ordinary lot of their cotemporaries. that was the very origin of the

fellows ; as possessing a sturdy spirit of independence and a love 
of liberty that kept them from bowing to the yoke. How this.

freedom was won the writer knows not. Tt may liave been the 
reward of some heroic deed in battle, or some s^reat ser\'icc for the 
State: it may have l)een boncfht with a price. I)een the <^ift oi a 
sovereign or a matter of inheritance. But. however it came about, 
when it did come it grave to the man who before was only a Hans 
or a Frederick a surname, a somethins^ to disting-uish him from the 
other Hanses and Fredericks, and something^ not brous^ht about by 
his occupation, as the Snyders or the Millers, or by his dwelling 
place, as the Glatfelters or the Vandersloots ; but by his changed 
condition. Henceforth he was "Frey!" the German word for 
^'free." 

Many families go to much trouble to show their descent from 
royalty; scarcely any are willing to claim any so-called "lower" 
ancestry than the nobility. It seems to the writer that however 
laudable this may be where title and princely prerogrative still 
prevail, it has no place in a land of free people. In a country 
where the law recognizes no titles save such connected with an 
office itself the gift of the people or their representatives, and where 
no title is hereditary, it seems poor taste to lay any stress on being 
connected with those who possessed rights and privileges by the 
ancient law of might and the accident of birth. To be noble is not 
to be born of one wearing a crown or a title; but to do noble acts. 
How can he be noble wdio is enjoying the fruits of wrongdoing 
and oppression, of pro]>erty and privilege wrung from the people 
in tlie days of old. by deeds that reeked with blood and cruelty. 

It is for the Freys to rejoice that the family was founded in 
the spirit of freedom, and that, so far as is known, thev have 
always preserved their birthright. Rather than submit to the 
exactions of civil and ecclesiastical oppressors thev emigrated to a 
new and a strang-e land across the seas ; they settled in a wild 
country, wresting from a virgfin soil a livelihood for their generous 
families; amid dangers from w-ild beast and wilder men they built 
their homes, transformed the frowning- forests into smiling fields 
and reared sturdy sons and daughters to people the new land ; and 
when a tyrannical king sought to oppress those who had carved

out a new nation in the New World, the names of these same Freys 
again appear as bearing arms in the cause that was to preserve that 
which was of their very nature, the very name by which they were 
distinguished from all other people. 

It behooves the present and future Freys to continue this noble 
trait of our ancestors; to be free from the servitude of tyrant or 
oligarchy, of priest or party; to quit themselves, not as slaves or 
cravens, but as free men, doing their whole duty in the uplift of the 
human race. 

The Orthography. 

The fac-simile of Gottfried Frey's signature to his will, and 
the Hillsbach church records, show the German spelling of the 
name. Possibly the old Freysville tombstone, where it is carved 
"Frei," is the most proper English method, and is less liable to be 
mispronounced ; but the F-r-e-y spelling presents a more finished 
appearance, and corresponds more literally with the original 
orthography. There is but one objection to the F-r-e-y spelling, 
and that is the matter of pronunciation, some people saying "Free'' 
and some "Fray" ; both of which are justified by the pronunciation 
of the last syllable in such words as Geoffrey, Godfrey, etc., and by 
the pronunciation of grey, they, etc. But since "eye" is pronounced 
"i", why should the consonants "Fr" affect the sound of the vowel 
"y" Why should it not be "Fr^y"— "Frei." 

Let us not allow the significance of the good old name to be 
lost merely because those who know no language but English are 
unable to decide which of the three ways of pronouncing "ey" they 
are to follow. Personal acquaintance will soon set them aright, 
and where there is no personal acquaintance it matters little what 
we are called. 

It is a great pity that some members of the family in this 
country have seen fit to change the ancient and symbolical 
orthography of the name to that which is practically meaningless, 
or at the most bears with it nothing to be proud of. "Fry," "a 
swarm or crowd, particularly of fish ;" "to be dressed in a pan over 



TH1<: FRI'.YS. 21 

a fire;" what is there in this to exult in. or to fasten to a child 
for life! Who would deliberately trade a ])irthrit,dit of freedom for 
a mess of fish or a dish of fried jiotatocs! 

The writer's own grandfather, at one period in his life, spelled 
his name "Fry." doing so for the reason that the Knglisii people 
of the county mispronounced the Prey s])elling and thus he lost 
trade because the people asked for Fray or Free instead of Frey. 
His descendants, however, without any certain knowledo-e of the 
original spelling, resumed the "e." and all of them retain it to this 
day. Tt would be an appropriate tribute to the founders of the 
family if those who use the "shorter and uglier w^ord" because their 
father used it before them would return to the orthography justified 
by the meaning of the name and used by the bearers of it in the 
fatherland and the first two generations in this country. 

Other Freys. 

The writer has been unable to gain any positive knowledge of 
the Freys in the Old World outside of those hereafter given as his 
ancestors. The remark of Mr. Smyser, heretofore referred to, 
proves that the name has not died out across the water ; in fact, one 
of the participants in the first aviation race from Paris to Rome 
was "a German named Prey;" showdng that the same spirit which 
led so many to seek a new land still moves one of them to conquer 
in a new field. Whether any of the family has acquired wealth or 
fame in any way in foreign lands he is unable to say. 

Of Freys in the United States there are many, and some of 
the name were here early in our country's history. A Heinrich 
Frey arrived in America in 1680^, and there was another 
Heinrich Frey in New York state in its early days. There was an 
Englishman named Jacob Frey who came to New Jersev in 1681', 
and Massachusetts had a George Frye as early as 1651'. Pcm- the

It must be remembered that Philadelphia, though doubtless in 
those days the principal, was not the only, port of entry for immi- 
grants, and it is not improbable that Freys arrived at other ports. 
Suffice it to say that the name is quite common through Pennsyl- 
vania, and probably not unknown in any state in the Union. We 
can not say that any of them have set the world afire by anything 
that they have done ; but they have apparently all played their part 
in making up the bone and sinew of the country — the Common 
People. 

The first United States Census, taken in 1790, and which 
contains only the names of heads of families, gives the following 
Freys in York County in that year :

In the river townships of York County are quite a number of 
I'Veys, some of whom douhtlcss are descendants of Lancaster 
County l'>eys. and the others may be of the posterity of other sons 
of Tobias, the immigrant, than the one who is the subject of this 
vohime. 

There are c|uite a number of Freys in York who are descended 
from the Martin Frey hereafter referred to''. The descendants of 
Tobias' are also numerous in Dover and surrounding townships. 
In the Northern end of the county are l-'reys whose ancestors came 
from Berks after the Revokition, and there are also others who 
dou])tless come from some of those in the above list. 

Adams County has a number of Freys who the writer is 
inclined to believe spring from Conrad, the older brother of 
Gottfried, and others from a Samuel Frey, who may have been a 
son of Tobias, born after the latter's arrival in this country. At 
any rate, to attempt to identify all the Freys living in York- 
County alone would involve a task too great for the writer and 
subject the publication of this volume to an unreasonable delay. 
Should some descendant of either of these collateral branches 
undertake the w-ork he would earn the gratitude of all his kindred ; 
but he would only then appreciate the toil spent by the writer on 
this publication.

HE size of this book was selected as being the most usual 
and convenient; the paper is of a good quality and 
calculated to wear well, that for the text being of an 
antique finish so as not to be hurtful to the eye, while 
that used for the illustrations is of a higher finish in order to bring 
out the details of the half-tone portraits. There is no method of 
illustration so true to life as the half-tone cut, in which the camera 
is used to faithfully reproduce the features. These illustrations are 
printed on extra heavy paper, giving a high degree of strength, 
and are sewed into the book in such a way as to insure their 
remaining an integral part thereof. In order to do this, illustra- 
tions do not always appear immediately next to the text of their 
subject; but as all portraits bear the name and number of the 
person illustrated there can be no difficulty in knowing to whom 
they belong. 

Female Names. 
The females mentioried in the genealogical part of this book 
are described by their maiden names, as otherwise their family 
connection with their parents would not be immediately apparent. 
Where married, the fact is stated and the husband's name given 
in the same paragraph, and their issue are of course given the 
husband's surname. Where illustrated, the maiden name appears 
in parentheses just before the married surname, so that whether 
searching for a portrait by the maiden name or the married name 
it can readily be found. 

To avoid repetition, immediately after the "subject's" name is 
given date of birth and death, if deceased; then, if a man, occupa- 
tion and residence; and, lastly, date of marriage, wife's maiden 



EXPLANATORY. 25 

name, date of birth ruid death. Tti the case of women subjects, 
date of birtli and death are first given; then date of marriage, 
name, date of birth and death, occupation and residence of husband. 
In this way there is no confusion as to whom the various dates 
belong. Where any of these data are omitted it is because of 
inabihty to obtain them. Where no State is mentioned, Pennsyl- 
vania is understood, and where township only is given, \'ork 
County is meant. 

Throughout the book will be found references to subjects by 
name and number, or by number alone. These numbers refer to 
the subject's number, which number is fixed by the following 
scheme for the 

Designation of Generation and Place. 
One of the problems, and there are many of them, that 

confronts the genealogist, is the method of presenting the 
family roster so as to be intelligible to his readers. It 
should enable any one that can read to easily locate any 
member of the family, trace back the ancestors or follow down the 
descendants. A book that makes it difficult to do this is prolific of 
profanity, uttered or unexpressed, by those who refer to its pages 
for knowledge of the family. 

The most usual way, so far as the writer has observed, is to 
print the name of the subject in heavy faced type, preceded by his 
number, and followed by his ancestors in parentheses, thus : 

236 Albert Frey Gallatin'^ (Albert.^ Samuel.^ 

George.'^ Gottfried^) b. May 15, etc. 

The number 236 indicates that he is the 236th subject taken 
up. After giving an account of him. his children would be given 
a line each, thus 

1128 Edna May Gallatin. 

1129 Mary Grace Gallatin, and so on. 

The numbers given them are next in order to the children of 
the man who was No. 235 and who may have been an exceedingly 
distant relative of Albert F. Gallatin. When all the numbers 
between 236 and 1128 have been taken up, as 236 was, then 1128 
appears in the large type and is properly disposed of. In short. 



26 INTRODUCTORY. 

the book starts with number i, numbers all of that generation con- 
secutively, then in numerical succession follow all of the second 
generation, and so to the end of the work. The small numbers 5, 
4, 3, 2, I represent the generation of Albert and his ancestors. 

This method has the advantage of showing at a glance a sub- 
ject's ancestors and his children; but to know more about the chil- 
dren or the ancestors involves quite a search throughout the book. 
In addition the repetition of the ancestral names consumes consid- 
erable space; yet without it the descent is unintelligible. 

An improvement on this was the method used in the Spangler 
Families. Mr. Spangler used various sizes of type for the different 
generations, and corresponding numbers, thus: 

1. CASPER SPENGLER. 

I. JONAS SPENGLER. 

I. MAJOR JOSEPH SPANGLER. 

I. JONAS SPANGLER. 
J. GEORGE SPANGLER. 
I. John Spangler. 

Then he followed each subject down to the end, before he 
took up the next. In this way, families remained grouped, and 
once you had located any branch there was no trouble in following 
out all the individual members. The only criticism on this method 
is that to find out a man's ancestors you had to go back through 
many pages, picking out the successively enlarged type. 

The writer has made free use of Mr. Spangler's varied type 
method, and added thereto an original system of notation which 
he modestly considers the best yet devised for the purpose. 

Gottfried Frey, believed to be the oldest son^ of his father, is 
distinguished thus: 



^After this was written, and much of the genealog'ical copy ready for the 
printer, it was found that Gottfried was really the second child; but as he 
is the foundation of this work it was thought best to allow him to remain 
as "primus." 



FA'PLANATORV. 27 

I. (3ottfric6 Jfre^. 

George, his sixth child, appears thus: 

16. (3cotQc jfre^. 

Hie fifth child of George is 

165. S^acob jfre^. 

His second child was 

1652 SARAH ANN FREY. Her fourth child was 
16524 JOSEPH JESSE HUNTER. His second child was 
165242 Maud Isabelle Hunter, whose oldest child is 
165242 1 Paul David Garver, and his oldest child, if named 
after his great-grandfather would appear as 

16524211 Joseph Hunter Garver, while the first-born of 
Joseph might be designated 

165242III MAUD HUNTER GARVER. 

In the case of large families, where there are more than nine 
children, the higher numbers appear in italics, to show that it is 
but one number instead of two. Thus 1661/i' designates the 
twelfth child of the first child of the sixth child of the sixth child of 
Gottfried. 

In short, reading from left to right, each place of number 
represents a generation ; each number denotes that child's place in 
the family of the number immediately preceding. 

It is believed that after a little usage the names of the older 
members will soon be associated with their numbers, and so the 
family branch be at once recognized. All the children of George 
will know themselves to be in the i6s, and Adam's descendants will 
lay claim to the i8s, and so on. 

Another guide lies in the fact that persons whose numbers 
dififer only in the last figure are children of the same parent ; a 



28 INTRODUCTORY. 

difference in the next to the last figure means children of the same 
grandparent; and so forth. 

This system is used throughout the book because it is believed 
to best answer the requirements of intelligibility and economy of 
space and time, and it is hoped it will meet with the favor of the 
readers of these records. 

The Illustrations. 

There is nothing so expressive as the human face, and, in the 
absence of personal contact, or knowledge of their lives, in no way 
can we learn so much of our fellows as through a study of their 
features. Especially is this so where the subjects are in middle 
life, where time has had the opportunity to write so much of a 
man's character in the lines of his face. It was with this purpose 
that the writer sought to secure as many portraits of descendants 
of Gottfried Frey as possible for this work. Naturally, portraits 
are expensive, though modern photo-engraving has reduced the 
cost very materially, at the same time giving more truthful like- 
nesses than the often flattering tool of the wood or steel engraver, 
where the softening of a line here or there will entirely change the 
expression. 

The portraits given in this work, with few exceptions, are 
the contributions of relatives of the persons presented, children, 
grandchildren or other loving ones joining in having the dear 
one's face perpetuated in this way. The rule has been to exclude 
every one not of Frey blood ; but anyone of that blood, be it ever 
so diluted, was allowed in these pages. The portraits have been 
made uniform in style, so as not to be open to the charge of par- 
tiality, and of a character to make their cost within the reach of 
nearly every one. In a measure, they are typical of a family's 
interest in the work and of their regard for the subject shown. 
Wherever the least concern was manifest there was given the 
opportunity to make use of this method of contributing to the 
work and of paying respect to the memory of a loved one, and if 
some families or branches seem to be lacking in the matter of 
illustrations the fault is not that of the writer.

jfinbing of Gottfried. 



y^S^ N the writer's first attempt to find his ancestors the place 
/j ^ first resorted to was the ofiice of the Register of Wills 
^iJil>' of the County of York, Pa. The county was organized 
from a part of Lancaster in 1749; and the second Frey 
■who seems to have died therein after its organization and left 
anything worth while administering upon was Gottfried Frey, on 
whose estate letters of administration were first granted to John 
Hay and John Welsh on May 21. 1782. Subsequently his will 
was found and probated on June 14, 1782. In the record he is 
described as of York township. As the writer had always under- 
stood that his forefathers had founded Freystown, which, at the 
time of this search was located in Springgarden township, the 
conclusion was reached that this was not the man sought, and the 
search stopped right there, partly for this reason and for the press 
of business affairs. 

Second Attempt. 
When the second attempt was made, again was this same 
stumbling block found : but about that same time the writer awoke 
to the fact that Springgarden township was not contemporaneous 
with the organization of York County ; but that in the earliest days 
all of Lancaster County west of the Susquehanna and above the 
Yellow Breeches was known as Pennsl^oro: while nil below that 
creek was designated as Hopewell. A little later on there were two 
Hallams. Upper and Lower, carved out of Hopewell, which latter 
name was afterward restricted to the part of the county along the 
Maryland line, and from which many townships have been formed. 



32 GOTTFRIED FREY. 

A little later York township, including the village of York, was 
formed from a part of Hellam, and in 1821 Springgarden township 
was cut out of York township. Thus, the question of residence 
was no longer contradictory, but confirmatory of the theory that 
Gottfried was an ancestor, giving the first link in the chain. 
Examination of Gottfried's will, which appears subsequently in 
these pages, shows that he had indeed laid out building lots and 
sold a number of them, and provided for the disposal of the income 
from the ground rents and the ownership in fee of those unsold at 
the time of his death. Still later it was discovered that Rowe's 
Atlas of York gives "Godfrey Frey's addition." Here was the 
second link in the chain of identification, the founding of the town 
of Freystown. 

Gottfried's will names a Samuel Frey as one of his sons, and 
on the first blush the writer supposed this to be his grandfather ; 
but recourse being had to the tombstone of the latter revealed the 
fact of his birth after the date of Gottfried's will, which of course 
showed that the Samuel in the \yill was not the Samuel of the 
tombstone. It was then thought that the latter was a son of the 
former, a theory which was effectually disposed of by the finding 
of the record of the baptism of the latter on the church books, as 
described in 16. 

This will of Gottfried gives the names of his seven surviving 
children, among whom is that of George Frey. In 16 are given 
the reasons for believing that the George of Gottfried is the George 
who was the father of 167 Samuel Frey, thus conclusively fixing 
Gottfried as the American ancestor. The writer has noticed that 
other genealogies state the mere fact of connection between the 
various branches, without any presentation of evidence to show 
the truth of their assertions. This does not mean that he charges 
these writers with knowingly stating untruths; but he has always 
felt that, like the Missourian, he would like to be shown. The 
temptation to make ancestors, where none can be easily found, is 
almost overpowering, and so it is not strange that the query comes 
up, "How do you know?" Hence, all through this work, except

where the facts are of the present time, and easily susceptible of 
verification, the writer gives tiie evidence of the trnth of his 
statements. 

The first historical reference that could be found of Gottfried 
Frey was among a list of marriages celebrated by Pastor Stoever^ 
in which appeared the following: 

July 31. 1742, Godfrey Frey to Margaret T.inn. 

No reference to his parentage or residence is there given, and 
so the next problem undertaken was the effort to discover his 
ancestry. It was felt, however, that while such an attempt was 
being made it was well to search out his posterity, and the two 
lines were worked on simultaneously, the latter, from the very 
nature of things, going along more rapidly than the former. In 
fact, it was not until nearly all the work of locating his descendants 
as completely as it was felt safe to delay the publication of the 
book for had been done, that the progenitors of the bridegroom of 
1742 were discovered.

y-A INDING the ancestr}' of Gottfried Frey was attended with 
"w^ the usual surprises and disappointments common to all 
rVE^ genealogical researches; and in the end success followed 
the adoption of a course so logical that it is inexplicable 
why it was not tried at the very outset. But it seems that in many 
of the affairs of life we close our eyes to the apparent and seek for 
the hidden and difficult. 

The fact that Gottfried Frey was married in York (then 
Lancaster) County in 1742 showed that he was either born in or 
came to this country prior to that date. Also, it seemed probable 
that if he was married here at that time, his parents would then be 
living in the county. Reference to the ''Spangler Families" shows 
a Tobias Frey owning at least 450 acres of land one mile east of 
the Codorus Creek, which he sold to Baltzer Spangler for 30 
pounds. This deed is dated April 4, 1747^ and sets forth that the 
land conveyed was part of a large tract of 450 acres for which 
Tobias had a patent dated October 30, 1736. This was about the 
date when settlements were first authorized in this part of Penn- 
sylvania, owing to the fact that the territory had been claimed by 
both Maryland and Pennsylvania; but there were settlers in York 
County around Kreutz Creek as early as 1729; a Martin Frey 
settled on the northeastern borders of the present city of York in 
1734. It is likely that Tobias Frey settled on his tract some years 
before he could get a patent therefor, as did his cotemporaries. 

Reference to early York County records showed that Gottfried 
Frey was guardian for Martin, a son of Martin Frey^, while an 

-?Deed Book A, 543. 20. C. Docket A, 60. 



HIS AXCMsrm' 35 

older son of Martin's was named Tobias. The [guardianship and 
the repetition of the name Tobias indicate a relation existing 
between Martin, the elder 1\)bias and Gottfried. 

Looking for Tobias. 

The obvious thing to do was to search for the settlement of 
the estate of Tobias Frey. as a man who had had 450 acres of land 
in 1747 was likely to have some of it left at the time of his death. 
The York County records showing- nothing of Tobias. Lancaster 
County, from wiiich York was formed, was resorted to. Here was 
found a record of the granting of letters of administration on the 
estate of Tobias Frey. in the year 1748. to Godfrey Frey, admin- 
istrator; the bond is dated June 15. 1848. and Jacob Beelmyer. of 
York, appears as bondsman. The inventory of the personal prop- 
erty filed sets forth a few hundred pounds of personalty, and then 
states that the "improvements, by agreement of the heirs, are for 
the use of the widow." whose name is given as Barbara. So far. 
so good ; but here the trail is lost. There is no record of any 
account, any release, or any appointment of guardians, by which 
the children of Tobias Frey could be identified. The mere fact 
that Godfrey administered was not positive proof of sonship, since, 
by agreement, such an office might have been filled by a brother or 
one not at all related to the deceased. 

Then the thought arose that as the "improvements" were left 
for the use of the widow there must have come a time when they 
were sold and the deed therefor would doubtless be executed by 
the heirs, naming them. Diligent search was made for a deed 
from the heirs of Tobias Frey, or from a combination of Freys; 
but nothing could be found. The abstracts of a title company of 
all deeds on record for lands in the township of "Hallam." where 
Tobias' tract was located, and in the townships of York and Spring- 
garden, which, after their respective formation, included the tract, 
were examined ; but no such deed or reference to such deed could 
be found. Even the modern "open sesame" — advertising — was 
resorted to without producing any results. Evidently the honest 



36 GOTTFRIED FREY. 

old Germans who received their share of the proceeds of the real 
estate after it was sold were so well satisfied of each other's 
integrit}' that no release was given or recorded ; and the purchasers 
of the property were so thoroughly convinced that the Freys would 
not attempt to sell it again that no deed was recorded, a measure of 
economy which, however satisfactory it may have been to them, 
proved exceedingly discouraging to the future genealogist. 

One additional fact that seemed corroborative of the Tobias 
theory was the discovery that the name of Tobias' widow, Barbara, 
w^as also a part of the name of one of Gottfried's daughters, 
Julianna Barbara. As still further connecting Martin with the 
family was the discovery of a record in Lancaster County of God- 
frey Frey being one of the bondsmen of the administratrix of 
Martin Frey, December 8, 1739. 

On page 49 of "Rupp's 30,000 Names of German, Swiss, 
Dutch, French and other immigrants," in the very first list, being 
those who arrived in Philadelphia on September 21, 1727, in the 
ship "William and Sarah," the fourth name is Tobias Frey. The 
list describes these immigrants as Palatines, and gives only the 
names of the males above the age of 16. Presuming Gottfried to 
have been 21 when he was married in 1742, he would have been 7 
years old when this ship arrived in America, and, consequently, 
even if a passenger with his (supposed) father, his name would not 
appear on the list. The one sure way of settling the question of 
paternity was the finding of a record of the name of Tobias' chil- 
dren, something that could easily be done, from the fact that Old 
World church records are faithfully and accurately kept, when once 
it was known where Tobias came from. 

Describing the immigrants as Palatines, while safe enough as a 
general term, was of little assistance, as the Palatinate was a terri- 
tory about 6.000 square miles in extent, with a population of over 
1.000,000. The proverbial "needle in the haystack" would be more 
easily discovered than a man with no other means of location than 
that. The writer was told that a prominent York family learned 
of their native place by means of advertisements placed in German 



TITS AXCKSTRV. ij 

papers offering a liberal reward to the (jernian pastor who would 
find the family recorded in his parish records. This would prob- 
ably have proved effective, but was too expensive a method. From 
one source the writer learned that an uncle of his had once read 
a Sundav school library containinc^ a story about a Frey who lived 
in Alsace and believed that the family came from thence; but this 
was no more definite than the Palatine designation. 

The Alsatian theory received some support from the fact that 
probably the first Frey in America, Heinrich Frey, who came to 
New York in 1675 and to Philadel])hia in 1680, was born in 
Altheim. Alsace, in 1653. There is also another reference to Hein- 
rich Frey which describes him as having been in Pennsylvania be- 
fore the days of Penn^, and of subsequently returning to Zurich. 
Again, there seems to have been a Heinrich Frey in early days in 
New York state, who came from Zurich. A letter written to the 
American consul at Zuricli brought the reply that there were no 
municipal records in that city of births or deaths prior to 1773. 

There was a George Frye in Massachusetts in 1651 — F'irst 
settlers of New England 1 14: but as that did not fit with the immi- 
gration of Tobias in 1727, no search w^as made in that direction. 

With such intangible chics, and being busily engaged in tracing 
the posterity of Gottfried, the writer did nothing definite toward 
ascertaining the ])ioneer's ancestry until the latter part of January. 
191 1, when the idea came to him that since Tobias w-as a pas- 
senger on the same ship which brought to America Hans Casper 
Spengler, there was a bare possibility that these two might have 
been fellow-townsmen. With but little hope of finding such an 
easy solution to the problem, a letter was addressed to the Evan- 
gelical Protestant pastor of Hilsbach, Baden, which, more than a 
month later, resulted in a reply from that personage that the "name 
of Tobias Frey indeed appears on the records of our church,'' and 
for a modest sum a certified copy of the records of himself and his 
ancestors back to about the year 1600 would be duly sent.

It is needless to say that no time was lost in replying to this 
gratifying communication. After a little longer wait, due doubtless 
to the time taken in copying the records, came the following 
statement : 

Family Tree of Tobias Frey. 

The family of Tobias Frey, according to notices in our oldest 
church records, probably came from Urdorf, in Canton Zurich, 
Switzerland, and evidently after the thirty years' war (1618-1648) 
settled in the city of Hilsbach, at that time belonging to the 
Palatine, now in Baden. Hilsbach now numbers 1,263 inhabi- 
tants, and is about 7 hours' journey (21 miles) west of Heidelberg. 

In our records there appears as the oldest ancestor of the 
family 

KASPAR FREY, 

member of the Council in Hilsbach. His birth antedates the begin- 
ning of the records. In our oldest church records is entered only the 
date of his death, Sept. 5, 1688, his age being given as "eighty 
and odd years," so that he was born about 1605. His wife's name 
was Anna; also of her only the date of her death is known to us; 
died Feb. 28, 1688. She was then 75 years old; her birthday, 
therefore, is in the year 161 3. This married couple's son was 

HANS FREY. 

Concerning his birth and death no notice could be found. He 
w^as twice married: 

I. On the 20th of February, 1666, he was married at Hils- 
bach to Margarethe Schopff, of Weiler, at the foot of Steinsberg, 
half hour (li miles) distant from Hilsbach. Then Hans Frey 
moved to Weiler, and became the ancestor of the Weiler line of 
the Frey family. Margarethe Frey, nee Schoff. died already, April 
9. 1676, in childbirth, 34 years of age. She was, therefore, bom 
in the year 1646. Of this first marriage of Hans Frey, four 
children can be traced : 

1. Hans, born Oct. 12, 1666. Concerning him no further 

notice can be found. 

2. Hans Jacob, born Sept. 12, 1669. 

3. Hans Michael, born Oct. 6, 1678; died April 13, 1675. 

4. Hans Michael, born Mar. 23, 1676, died May 29, 1676.

The branch of Hans Jacob Frey nourished in the male hne in 
VVeiler through five generations. It became extinct with the death 
of John Geori^e hVey on December i. 1893. He left, of two 
marriaij^es. three daughters, who are still living. The oldest one is 
in liilsb;ich; the second in W'aldangelloch. (jne hour (3 miles) 
distant from Hilsbach ; and the youngest one married in Weiler. 

n. On November 7, 1676, Hans Frey contracted a second 
married with Margarethe Volck, daughter of Vinegrower Wolf 
Volck, in Weiler. This wife died on December 5, 1701, 49 years 
old. She. tlierefore, was born 1652. Of this marriage likewise 
four children are traceable: 

1. Hans Martin, b. July i. 1677; ^^^^^^ Sept. 4, 1678. 

2. Hans George, born Sept. 25, 1681 ; died Jan. 17, 1691. 

3. Tobias, born June i, 1684. 

4. Anna Katharina, born Jan. 29, 1689. Of her nothing 

is known. 

TOBIAS FREY 

was a wagoner in Weiler. and married on July 17. 1709. one Anna 
Maria Peters, of Eppingen. county seat, two hours (6 miles) dis- 
tance from Hilsbach. To this couple was born, in Weiler, three 
children : 

1. Conrad, born March 10. 171 5. 

2. Gottfried, born Aug. 4, 1721. 

3. Anna Maria, born Dec. 6, 1722. 

Since then the name of Tobias Frey has disappeared from our 
church records. Notices concerning his emigration to America are 
not to be found in our records. 




The agreement of these state- 
ments with the corresponding 
entries in the church records of 
Hilsbach and Weiler is hereby 
certified.

So, thanks to the passport of Henry Spangler, which was 
faithfully preserved by his descendants, and is set forth in full in 



40 GOTTFRIED FREY. 

the ''Spangler Families,"'* were revealed three ancestors of Gottfried 
Frey. The statement justified the inference drawn from the 
Lancaster records, that Tobias was the father of Gottfried. The 
■only flaw is the fact that Tobias' wife was named Anna, while 
his widow is designated as Barbara; but a second marriage prob- 
ably accounts for this discrepancy. The bond between Tobias, 
Martin and Gottfried can not be explained on the theory that had 
first been formed, that Martin was a son or younger brother of 
Tobias. It is probable that the Hans born October 12, 1666, who 
is set forth in the Hilsbach statement as "concerning him no 
further notice can be found," left Weiler and eventually drifted to 
America, or that a son of his named Martin was himself an 
emigrant; or Martin may have been a descendant of Hans Jacob, 
Tobias' older half-brother. 

Letters addressed to the pastor of a Protestant church at 
Urdorf, in an attempt to trace Kaspar's ancestry, met with no reply. 

From the German records given, it will be seen that the de- 
scendants of Gottfried Frey are interested in Hilsbach and Weiler, 
two German villages, now in Baden, only a mile and a half apart. 
Hilsbach is the parish town, the pastor conducting services at both 
places. The population of Hilsbach is stated in Rev. Greiner's 
letter; that of Weiler, in 1895 was 967. Gottfried Frey was 
doubtless baptized in the church at Weiler, an illustration of which 
is given. There is also shown the ancestral home of the Spenglers, 
of whom five sons and a daughter married Freys, 161412, 1632, 
1635, 1636, 16715 and 167775.

EVANGELICAL PROTESTANT CHURCH AT WEILER. 



jfrom Meikr to It^orF^. 




(\^ ORN in Weiler on August 4. 1721, Gottfried Frey passed 
the first six years of his hfe as a German lad, during a 
time when the hfe of the German was anything Ijut 
pleasant, especially in the war-swept country of the 
Palatinate. The horrors of the Thirty Years' War ending in 1648 
had not been forgotten when in 1674 Turenne, the great General 
of Louis XIV. made the Palatine a solitude. Eighty thousand 
troops were suddenly hurled upon the unprotected territory, 
Heidelberg, Mannheim, Worms and twelve hundred villages were 
razed to the ground, and 40,000 inhabitants robbed of alt they 
possessed. So complete was the work of destruction that on the 
last night of the French general's stay in the unfortunate district 
he himself had to sleep on a bed of straw. 

A succession of wars, with brief intervals of peace, combined 
to make the lot of the Palatines extremely burdensome. Added to 
military oppression was fear of religious persecution, so that men 
looked longingly toward a land where there was freedom of con- 
science and rest from the wars of ambition and kingly pride. The 
spirit of the people is strikingly portrayed in the following letter, 
written by the father of Heinrich Frey to his son, who was one of 
the first German settlers in Pennsylvania. A copy of this letter^ 
the original of which is in tlie possession of a German Historical 
Society, was furnished to the writer by Benjamin Bertolet. a lineal 
descendant of Heinrich Frey. who has spent years in tracing- 
Heinrich's descendants, and recently successfully carried through a 
movement for the erection of a monument to the first Frey in 
America.^ 



^Heinrich Frey emigrated from Atheim, Elsass, in 167.'), at the age of 22, 
and arrived in Pennsylvania before 1681.

Letter to America. 

Heilborn, February 6, 1681. 
Dear Son : 

Your letter from far away America reached us by the hands 
of the brave Captain Sanders, and it gave us great joy. And when, 
a few days later, the father of your true friend came to see us, our 
joy was beyond measure. 

America, according to your writing, must be a beautiful land. 
We rejoice greatly that your home is with such good God-fearing 
people, and that the Indians in your community are peace-loving 
people. 

Dear Henry, since you have been away from us the conditions 
in South Germany have been very much worse. The French have 
wrought much devastation, and this is pressing us very hard at this 
time, and besides this, we are now suffering the plague of high 
taxes. 

Thousands would gladly leave the Fatherland if they had the 
means to do so. A merchant from Frankfort was with us last 
week, and informed us how along the Rhine a number of families 
have banded together and are planning to accept the invitation of 
an Englishman named William Penn, who recently visited this 
community, to settle in that beautiful land and there establish new 
homes. 

After I had received the information I went at once to our 
pastor, whose parents live in Worms, on the Rhine, and begged him 
urgently to learn what truth there was in these reports, and to find 
out, if possible, if there would be any opportunity for us to join 
them and go to the New World. He then informed me that these 
reports were all true, and that he was informed by one who had 
inside knowledge that in a place called Kriegsheim, near Worms, 
many were preparing themselves to go to the New World. When 
I gave the good man your letter to read he was greatly surprised 
and said that you were on the land to which these emigrants were 
going. 

It is the good providence of God that has shown these bur- 
dened people so glorious a land. We, also the Plattenbach family, 
are only waiting for a good opportunity when the dear Lord will 
bring us to you.

Your brother Peter is learning shoemaking, and will soon be

years old, asks us daily "Will we soon be going to our brother in 
America?" 

Your dear mother, as also your brothers and sisters, greet you 
heartily, and pray to the dear Lord that Tie may protect and keei) 
you. Your True Father, 

Heinricii Fkky. 

The feeling of unrest and the desire to try their fortunes in 
the New World, set forth in the above letter, grew apace, and the 
tide of emigration from Germany to Pennsylvania attained such 
volume that the authorities in this State became alarmed, notwith- 
standing the fact that Queen Anne was herself active in inviting 
these settlers. "The Golden Book," so called because of its 
illuminated title page, contained a picture of that august lady, with 
glowing words of encouragement for the oi)pressed to come to 
England, to be sent from there to the English colonies in America. 

The earliest German settlements were made in what is yet 
known as Germantown, thongli now in the corporate limits of the 
city of Philadelphia, subsequently extending back in what is now 
Montgomery and Berks Counties, several townships in these 
counties bearing German names. Later Chester county was 
invaded, and a large body of Mennonites from Switzerland and 
Germany settled at Pequa, now in Lancaster County. 

"The Germans were principally farmers. They depended more 
upon themselves than upon others. They wielded the mattock, the 
ax and maul, and 1)y the power of brawny arms rooted up the 
grubs, removed saplings, felled majestic oaks, laid low the towering- 
hickory; prostrated, where they grew, the walnut, poplar, chestnut 
— cleaved such as suited the purpose into rails for fences — 
persevered untiringly until the forest was changed into arable 
field. They were those of whom Governor Thomas said, 1738: 
"This Province has been for some years the asylum of the dis- 
tressed Protestants of the Palatinate, and other parts of Germany: 
and, I believe, it may be truthfully said, that the present flour- 
ishing condition of it is in a great measure owing to the industry 
of those people; it is not altogether the fertility of the soil, but 



44 GOTTFRIED FREY. 

the number and industry of the people that makes a country 
flourish.''^ 

The Journey. 

For these causes and to such a land Tobias Frey decided to 
leave the little town of Weiler and undertake the long journey to 
the New World. Doubtless in the way depicted in Heinrich Frey's 
letter, a number of families in Weiler and other towns in the 
neighborhood, united in sundering the ties which bound them to 
friends and fatherland, and took the eventful step which eventually 
transformed them from subjects of a German Elector to sovereign 
citizens of a great Republic. We know that Tobias had as com- 
panion at least one of his neighbors, in the person of Hans Casper 
Spengler, and the list given^ may include other citizens of the little 
village in Baden. The list is headed by Rev. G. M. Weis, who was 
born January 23, 1700, either at Eppingen or at Stebbach, both 
towns less than fifty miles distant from Weiler. It is just possible 
that Weis may have been the pastor at Hillsbach, the church town 
for Weiler, or he may have gathered up a band of Germans to 
emigrate to the promised land. He became quite a famous pastor 
in America, and some of his descendants are living- in York todav.

The journey was doubtless down the Rhine on the slow flat 
boats of that time. Arriving at Rotterdam, passage was engaged 
on the ship William and Sarah, William Hill, master, which 
stopped at Dover, England, and then began the long voyage to 
America. A voyage of this kind, at that time, took about six 
months, and was both dangerous and uncomfortable. Crowded 
together in unventilated quarters, with poor food, many emigrants 
died on the way and were consigned to the bosom of the deep. 
Some unscrupulous captains actually lengthened the passage in 
order to make more money off the unfortunate passengers. 

We know not what kind of a man was Captain Hill, nor how 
speedy and comfortable his boat; but on September 18, 1727^, the

port of Philadelphia, then the cliief city of America, was reached. 
Notwithstanding the fact that they had been earnestly invited by 
Queen Anne's book and Penn's representations to come to this 
very city, they met with a very frigid reception when they landed. 
This was owing to the feeling of alarm thai had arisen in the 
minds of the Pennsylvania authorities over the great influx of 
Germans into the State, which caused Governor Keith to remark 
to his council : 

"That great numljers of foreigners from Germany, strangers 
to our language and constitution, having been lately imported into 
this Province, daily dispersed themselves immediately after land- 
ing, without producing certificates from whence they came or what 
they are, and. as they seemed to have first landed in Britain, and 
afterwards to have left without any license from government, or 
as far as they know\ so, in the same manner, they behaved here, 
without making the least api^lication to him or an)- of the magis- 
trates. That, as this practice might be of very dangerous conse- 
quence, since, by the same method, any number of foreigners from 
any nation whatever, enemies as well as friends, miglit throw them- 
selves upon us."® 

Another timid one put it thus : 

"Whose numbers from German}- at this rate, would sooii 
produce a German colony here, rmd perhaps such a one as Britain 
once received from Saxony in the fifth century."'' 

Moved by these fears, the Council decided to rcniuire from all 
immigrants their signature to the following 

Declaration. 

"We subscribers, natives and late inhabitants of the Palatinate 
upon the Rhine and places adjacent. ha\ing transported ourselves 
and families into this Province of Pennsylvania, a colony subject 
to the crown of Great Britain, in hopes and exi)ectation of finding 
a retreat and peaceable settlement therein, do solemnly promise and 
engage, that we will be faithful and bear true allegiance to his 
present Majesty King George the Second, and his successors, kings 
of Great Britain, and will be faithful to the proprietor of this

Province ; and that we will demean ourselves peaceably to all of his 
said majesty's subjects, and strictly observe and conform to the 
laws of England and of this Province, to the utmost of our power 
and the best of our understanding. 






It was this action on the part of the authorities that preserved 
for future generations the list of over 30,000 immigrants from 
Europe to Pennsylvania, and makes it possible for their descendants 
today to find when their ancestors landed, and helps to trace 
out their family connections in the Old World. On September 21, 
1727, this, the first body required to subscribe to the above 
Declaration, did so, the subscribers being confined to males over 
sixteen, and were then formally allowed to seek homes in the wide 
province before them. 

The writer has been unable to discover just where Tobias 
Frey went after he had safely passed the fearsome authorities. 
There were doubtless Freys at that time in and around German- 
town, and further back in Montgomery, Bucks and Berks 
counties. He has heard of a statement made by some of Tobias' 
descendants that they came from Berks County; but he found no 
records to verify it. The biographer of Heinrich Frey was unable 
to find among his records any mention of the names Tobias or 
Gottfried. It is not at all improbable that, with plenty of time on 
their hands, and with the approach of winter making travel diffi- 
cult, that the winter of 1727 may have been spent by Tobias with 
the people of the same nationality, if not of the same name, in or 
near Berks County. 

Tobias" Settlement. 

At this time the tide of travel, especially of the German immi- 
grants, was principally through the Chester valley and the Gap into 
the Pequa valley, to Strasburg. Tobias may have lDeen attracted 
to the Swiss and German settlement at Pequa, and spent some years 
there. But with the best land already largely taken up by the 
earlier settlers, and the virgin hills and valleys of what is now 
York county in sight across the Susquehanna, to be had for the

taking, it is not stran<:^e that he should soon find his way across the 
river into the Promised Land. 

just when he so crossed is not known r"* hut he was one of the 
settlers who, helievini^ the Susquehanna to he the line, in 1732-34, 
took grants from the Governor of Maryland for their land, which 
they received free of taxes. ^ 

Affairs, however, did not turn out as happily for them as they 
had been led to expect, as appears by the following petition pre- 
sented by tlieni to the ['resident and Council of the Province of 
Pennsylvania.-"' 

The petition of Most of the Inhabitants on the west side of 
Susquehanna River, Opposite to Hempfield. In the County of 
Lancaster, Humbly Sheweth, 

That your petitioners, two or three years past (being many of 
us then newdy arrived in America), & altogether Strangers to the 
Boundaries of the two Provinces of Pennsylvania & Maryland, 
were, by many plausible pretences and fair promises, persuaded to 
settle under the Government of the Latter, Supposing from what 
we were told that these Lands were within that Province, and that 
the River Susquehannah was the Division ; But, after we were 
seated, finding the usage we received w^as very different from that 
to the rest of the Government, and what small substance we had 
was often made a prey to some Persons Impowered by them ; 
And, tho' we Often made known our Cause of Complaint, 
could have no Redress, Nor the Promises which had been 
first made us, in the Least Regarded ; Being also lately told 
by some in Power there, that we were worse than Negroes, 
for that we had no Master, nor were under the protection 
of any Laws, and since Informed by them that the River 
Susquehanna Could not be the bounds, as we had at first 
been told, but that an East and West Line could Divide the 
Provinces; and also observing that the People on the East Side of 
the said River, Inhabitants of Pennsylvania, who live much more 
to the Southward than we do, Enjoy'd their Possessions peaceably, 

SThe author of the "Spangler Families" places Casper Spangrler's settle- 
ment in York County in 1729. Considering the close intimacy of the two men, 
it is quite probable that Tobias crossed the river about the same time.

without any Disturbance or Claim from the Province of Maryland ; 
Wee, from these Reasons, Concluded we had been Imposed upon,, 
& Deluded to Answer some purposes of the Government of Mary- 
land, which are not Justifiable, and might in the End tend to Our 
Ruin, and that we were not Settled within the true and Real 
Bounds of that Province, as we had been made to Believe ; And 
from a Sense thereof, and of the wrong we were doing to the 
Proprietors of Pennsylvania, in living on their Lands (as we now 
conceive we are) without paying Obedience to the Laws of your 
Government, Unanimously Resolved to Return to our Duty. Your 
Humble Petitioners therefore pray you would Impute our Late 
Errours to Our want of Better Information, and would be pleased 
to receive us under the Protection of your Laws and Government, 
To which, for the future, we promise all faithful Obedience & 
Submission. 

This petition was signed by forty-eight Germans, among whom 
we find the names of Tobias Fry (as the English translator wrote 
it), Martin Fry, and Tobias' fellow- Weilerite, Casper Springier 
(Spangler), showing that Tobias and Casper were still closely 
associated, and that the common name, if not a closer tie, bound 
together the two Freys. 

Naturally, the Maryland authorities were displeased at this 
renunciation of allegiance by their former settlers, and steps were 
taken to disposses them of their newly-formed homes. This was 
just as logically resisted both by the settlers and by the Pennsyl- 
vania government, and the conflict is known as "Cresap's War," in 
the course of which some of the Germans were imprisoned by the 
Maryland authorities, and all of them suffered anxiety and hard- 
ships. In the end, the British government sustained the contention 
of Pennsylvania, and the present York County continued a part 
of that Province. 

By this happy solution of the dispute, Tobias Frey remained 
the owner of 450 acres of land, which he, in his deed to Baltzer 
Spangler, describes as having received a patent for from the Penns 
October 30, 1736. A search at Harrisburg for the record of this 
patent revealed nothing. This land was located in the then town-

ship of Hcllam. probably along both sides of the road to Stevenson's 
Ferry, now Prospect street and Mount Rose avenue, southeast of 
the City of York, some of it beincf in the present city limits. Less 
than two years before his death he sold 250 acres of it to Ballzer 
Spangler for thirty pounds (about $150). 

Tobias' Death. 
Because Tobias Frey had a tract of land near York it does not 
necessarily follow that he lived and died there. One of the oldest 
settlements in York county is in Windsor township, practically 
opposite the town of Pequa. in Lancaster county, and is known as 
Freysville. The name bears the best of evidence as to the identity 
of the early settlers, and the assessments and church records show 
Freys in this place at least as early as 1748. 

In the cemetery of the old Lutheran and Dutch Presbyterian 
church of that village, in ground given for burying and church 
purposes by Conrad Frey. undoubtedly the son of Tobias, appear 
five time worn slabs of slate, marking the resting place of as many 
bodies, on which are barely discernible the following inscriptions : 

1748 Elizabeth Frey: 1748 M C F : 1748 A N F: 1748 T O 
F; 1748 Migel Frei. 

And near by this: Anna M. Frei 1748. 
Did some epidemic strike all these Freys and wipe out perhaps 
the entire family, or was that the date of the erection of the stones 
marking the graves of those who had died at different times? The 
date would correspond with the year of Tobias' death, and his chil- 
dren may have erected these simple slabs to mark the graves with- 
out regard to the dates of death. I^he writer has often thought 
that the Anna M. Frey there buried might be the ancestress of all 
those detailed in this book, the orthography being the English 
attempt to spell the German name as it was pronounced." As the 
oldest son (Conrad) resided at Freysville what would be more 
natural than to bury the father by the side of the wife of his 
younger days. The others may ha\e been children of Tobias or 

WTobias' wife was named Anna Maria; see page 39.

of his son Conrad. It is more pleasant to believe that this country 
"God's Acre" contains the remains of our pioneer ancestors than 
that their bones should have become scattered and lost under the 
progress of civilization which too often violates the grave when 
ground is wanted for modern improvements. 

Tobias Frey died in the early part of 1748. This is presumed 
from the fact that Godfrey Frey took out letters of administration 
on his estate on June 15, 1748. The inventory filed set forth a 
small amount of personal property, and then states that "by agree- 
ment of the heirs the improvements shall be for the use of the 
widow Barbara." No record of this agreement could be found; nor 
is there any record of any disposition of the real estate after the 
death of the widow. Neither is there any account filed by Gottfried 
of his trust, so that the writer was unable to find the names of 
Tobias' children, being uncertain even of Gottfried's sonship until 
the discovery of the Hilsbach records.^^ 

Of Tobias personally we know nothing save the above meager 
facts. That he was a man of enterprise is evidenced by his emigra- 
tion from the land of his nativity to a far-off and unknown country. 
That he was fearless is shown by his refusing to remain in the 
settled regions around Philadelphia or Pequa; but entering on the 
lonely and thinly populated country across the Susquehanna, he 
remained there notwithstanding the oppressions of the Maryland 
authorities and the ravages of Cresap. He gave his children the 
opportunity to carve for themselves homes in a free land, with 
equal opportunities for all men and privileges for none. His grave 
may be unknown and unmarked; but his memory will live in the 
hearts of those of his blood who owe to him their existence in this 
Land of Promise.

Ibis Xite anb Death. 




(\j^ T was amid such stnigg'les ag-ainst the wilderness, wild 
beasts and men of Cresap's stamp, as just depicted, that 
young Gottfried grew to man's estate. The hardships of 
the voyage, the journey to Pequa, the clearing of the 
forests mid the tilling of virgin soil, together with the constant 
alarms during the Cresap imbroglio and the Indian raids on the 
frontier, all tended to harden the muscle and the resolution of the 
emigrant lad, and wrought out the character which made him a 
man of affairs in t4iose days of the pioneers, and earned for him 
the respect and esteem of his neighbors and acquaintances. 

Whether, in those days when young men were taught trades, 
and when even girls were apprenticed to learn the mysteries of 
housekeeping. Gottfried was taught a trade, we do not know. Out- 
side the fact of his birth nothing further is known until December 
8, 1739, when he appears as one of the bondsmen for Maudlin 
Frey, who was the widow and administratrix of Martin Frey. as 
appears from the Lancaster county records. This indicates that 
he must have been the owner of some real estate, although the 
validity of a minor's bond may well be ([uestioned. Then, as 
previously stated, comes the important fact of marriage on July 31. 
1742, to Maria Margaretha Linn. 

On September 26. 1737. there arrived at Philadelphia the ship 
Saint Andrew Galley, having on board 450 Palatines. One of this 
number was Peter Lin ; there also appear other names familiar in 
York county history, such as Yost. Boeckel, Koch and Crone. 
Doubtless Margaretha was a daughter of this Peter Linn, and as 
in those days women were in demand, it was only a few years 
until she assumed her rightful place in life as wife and mother. 



52 GOTTFRIED FREY. 

It is a source of much regret to the writer that there is not in 
existence any portrait or even description of either of his great- 
great-grandparents ; but they evidently were people of sterling 
virtues. 

As before stated, Gottfried administered his father's estate in 
1749; in 1753 and 1755 he served as a grand juror; in 1755 he was 
guardian of Martin Frey, one of the two children of the Martin 
Frey who was one of the Germans who revolted against Maryland 
rule; in 1750 was one of the guardians of Joseph Boyer's children; 
in 1 771 was guardian of Peter Weverly; in 1773 he and his son 
Godfrey were Executors of Philip Peters' estate; and at various 
times he was appointed to positions of trust and responsibility, 
showing his reputation among his neighbors. Possibly the last 
public office he held was that of tax collector of York township in 
1779. 

His Real Estate. 
On October 19, 1762. he received a patent for the following 
land, upon which he had doubtless settled some years before ■} 

"Beg-inning at a marked white oak by the road leading from York to 
Stevenson's Ferry, thence by lands of Baltzer Spangler North 59 degrees East 
84 perches to a marked white oak; thence by lands of Jacob Heestand North 
88 perches to a marked Hickory, and North 26 degrees West 180 perches to a 
marked black oak; thence by lands of Adam Deel and Michael Main's heir.s 
South 64 degrees West 304 perches to a black oak fallen; thence by lands 
of Martin Frey South 24 perches to a marked hickory and South 13% degrees 
East 73 perches to a white oak fallen by the said road; thence extending the 
same East 231 perches to the place of beginning, containing 297 acres and 
containing the usual allowance of 6 acres per cent, for roads and highways," 
Consideration 109 pounds and 5 shillings. 

"Three full and clear fifths of all Royal Mines free from all deductions 
and reprisals for digging and refining the same, and also one-fifth part of the 
ore of all other mines delivered at the pit's mouth only excepted and hereby 
reserved, and also free right and liberty for the said Godfrey Frey, his heirs 
and assigns to hawk and hunt fish and fowl in and upon the hereby granted 
land and premises or upon any part thereof." 

"To be holden of us, our heirs and successors, Proprietaries of Pennsyl- 
vania, as of our Manor, &c., in the County of York aforesaid, in free and 
common socage by fealty only in lieu of all other service, yielding and paj^- 
ing therefore yearly unto us, our heirs and successors at the town of York 
in said County at or upon the first day of March in every year from the first 
day of March last, one halfpenny sterling for every acre of the same, or 
value thereof in our current money, as the exchange shall be between our 
said Province and the City of London, to such person or persons as shall

from time to time be appointed to receive the samo. And In case of non- 
payment thereof within ninety days next after the same shall become dne 
that then it shall and may be lawlnl for us, mir heirs and successors or their 
Receiver or Receivers into and upon the hi-reby sranted land and premises to 
re-enter and the same to hold and possess until the Quit Rent and all arrears 
thereof, together with the damages accruing b.\' reascm of such nonpayment 
and Re-entry be fully paid and discharged." 

"With all mines, Minerals, Quarries, .Meadows, Marshes, Savannahs, 
Swamps, Crippen, ^Voods, ITnderwoods, Timber and Trees, Wa>s, Waters, 
Water Courses, Liberties, Prolits, Commodities, Advantages. Hereditaments 
and Appurtenances thereunto belonging, or in any wise appertaining and 
lying within the bounds and Limits aforesaid." 

This tract extended from the present East Market street south 
to the present Prospect street, and from Brilhncrer's Lane (Harri- 
son street) to the old borough hne. See accompanying map. 
Judging from Gottfried's will, it was largely woodland, as some of 
it was still covered with timber at the time of his death. How 
slow, toilsome and unremunerative was the work of clearing it 
may be imagined from the fact that in 1769 the assessment shows 
that he had but seven acres in grain, and owned nnlv two horses, 
three cows and six sheep. 

As this portion of this volume was going to press, the writer 
conceived the idea that the absence of any evidence as to what 
became of the balance of Tobias Prey's land may be accounted for 
on the theory that Gottfried took it up. Though Tobias, in the 
deed to Baltzer Spangler described it as being patented, no record 
of the patent can be found in the office at Harrisburg. Discovering 
this defect, perhaps only after the death of the widow, when 
attempts may have been made to sell the land, Gottfried took steps 
to have that portion of the tract remaining unsold after the con- 
veyance to Spangler, and which lay north of the road to Steven- 
son's Ferry, patented, adding to the 200 acres enough to round out 
the nearly 300 acres for which he received a patent. The land so 
patented adjoined on the West land of Martin Prey, the second, 
doubtless inherited from the first Martin Prey, the friend of 
Tobias above referred to. What more natural than that they 
should have selected adjoining tracts? 

Confirmatory also of this theory is the further fact that 
though Baltzer Spangler had bought 250 acres which Tobias Prey 



54 GOTTFRIED FREY. 

described as having received a patent for, when the former pur- 
chased some adjoining tracts he took out, in 1763, a patent for 450 
■acres. Why a new patent if the first was vaHd; and observe how 
close the date to that when Gottfried discovered the necessity of 
procuring a patent. 

This explains why there is no evidence of any sale of Tobias' 
Teal estate, and also shows what Gottfried was doing in the interval 
between his marriage and 1762; doubtless working on his father's 
tract during the latter's lifetime, continuing working on it for the 
benefit of the widow, and after her death acquiring the same by 
agreement with the heirs and perfecting of the title. 

Gottfried seems to have been the originator of ihe real estate 
business in the vicinity of York. As early as 1763 he laid out all 
of his ground fronting on Market (then High) street, into building 
lots. These lots began at a point nearly opposite the present 
Broad street, and extended to the present Harrison street, a distance 
of over 4,800 feet, along the then Great Road to Wright's Ferry, 
now East Market street, and running in depth Southwardly to Low 
(now King) street. There appear to have been 74 of these lots, 
with a frontage of 65 feet each, of which some were unsold at the 
time of Gottfried's death. All of them were sold subject to the 
payment of ground rents, to Gottfried or his heirs, a common thing 
at that time, when all land paid an annual ground rent to the Penns. 

The first lot sold, apparently, was No. 12, to Mathias Sitler, on 
October i, 1763, for a ground rent of 30 shillings, and which later 
was sold to Andrew Nebinger;^ in 1765 lot No. 10 was sold to 
Joseph Updegraph,'' and according to the description in the deed 
Lot No. 9 then belonged to Baltzer Zurnewalt, and No. 1 1 to 
Gottlieb Ziegle. 

The Stone House. 

It is likely that when Gottfried first took to himself a wife their 
dwelling was the settler's rude log cabin, for which material was 
plenty and labor easily provided. Later on in life, perhaps only

after he had secnred a patent for his land and was secure against 
dispossession, he erected a stone house on the Great Road, which 
he occupied to the time of his death, and gave to his wife for use 
during her life, and after her death l<. his son Henry in fee. This 
house stood on a douljle terrace some distance back from the street, 
in a generous sized lot with an ample frontage on Market street, 
adjoining an alley on the East, and extending back to Low (now 
King) street. Through the courtesy of 1632 1 William Frey, who 
spent some of his boyhood years in the house with his grandfather 
163, the writer is able to present to his readers a picture of the old 
homestead. 

The house was a great one for its time, and had varied 
fortunes. After the death of Gottfried's widow it became the 
property of Henry Frey; Henry and his wife Susanna sold it to 
Peter Schwartz on January 14, 1790; Peter conveyed it to Jacob 
Kauffelt on April 25. 1796; and Kauffelt executed a deed therefor 
to Rev. Robert Cathcart on May 21. 1798.^ Rev. Cathcart was 
pastor of the First Presbyterian church, and the house remained in 
his possession for 43 years, when he sold it to Thomas Hambly, a 
member of the York County Bar.^ 

Hambly received from Cathcart a large plot of ground fronting 
on Market street and extending to Low street. He laid out the 
western portion into building lots of 25 feet front, and sold at 
least two of them to Henry Kauffelt ;^ then on December i. 1846. he 
sold 71 feet more to Kauffelt;^ and on August 21, 1852, Sheriff 
George Albright sold the eastern portion, including the historic 
house, to Jacob Laumaster.^ On July 23, 1853, Laumaster con- 
veyed the plot to Henry Kauffelt.'' 

About the time of the Civil \\''ar it fell into ruins, being the 
scene of several political riots. The writer can well remember the 
feeling of awe with which he regarded its vaulted cellars, given

over to vermin. Finall}^ the site, reduced to 44 feet front and 135 
feet deep, was purchased b}^ Charles H. Fry, and by him sold 
to John Miller on March 31. 1874,^" and today there are erected 
on it two modern dwelling houses, the old well which once furn- 
ished sparkling water to Gottfried and his numerous family having 
fallen to the most ignoble use. The property is known as Nos. 
606 and 608 East Market street. In a house erected on the highest 
point of the lot, about midway between High and Low streets, and 
facing on the original roadway east of the lot. lives 167663 Charles 
Blauser. 

His Religion. 
Having been brought up by Lutheran parents, the writer took 
it for granted that his ancestors were Lutherans "from away back," 
and was very much surprised indeed to learn that Gottfried, though 
married by a Lutheran pastor, and having his older children bap- 
tized by the Lutheran pastors, was a charter member of Zion's 
Reformed church, on May 24, 1763, and doubtless died in that 
faith, as his later children were baptized by the Reformed pastors. 
From the Hilsbach records it appears that his forefathers were 
members of the Evangelical Protestant (the State name for the 
Lutheran) Church; but it is just possible that Kaspar, coming from 
Switzerland, was brought up in the Calvanistic faith. Whether 
Gottfried knew this, and there remained in him an inborn loyalty 
to the Reformed church, or whether he had some disagreement with 
the Lutheran pastor and joined the Reformed persuasion in the 
hopes of finding a more congenial spiritual adviser, is not known. 
In those days, to many people, the only difference between the tAvo 
denominations was that the one said "Fauder unser," and the other 
"Unser Fauder," and so there was no great violence to former 
customs when the religious coat was changed. Doubtless he served 
his Maker just as conscientiously and faithfully in the one church 
as in the other. So far as the descendants are concerned it can

make no cliffcrence, since at tliis time there arc those of his blood 
in probably every Christian cult of the clay. 

War Rfxord. 
Whether Gottfried himself took any part in the War of the 
Revolution, is uncertain. The records show that Godfrey Frey 
was Captain of a militia company from 1777 to 1783;" one of 
the militia who arrested British prisoners and brought them to the 
stockade; and Captain of second Company, 3d Battalion in 1782^' 
but the dates 1782 and 1783, being after his death, make it more 
than probable that this refers to his son Godfrey. Being fifty- 
three years old at the outbreak of the Revolution, it is likely that 
he took no active part ; but that in spirit and enthusiasm he was 
on the side of liberty can justly, be inferred from the fact that the 
three of his sons able to bear arms were in more or less active 
service. The boy who knew of the oppressions of monarchial rule 
in the Palatinate was not likely to be slow in grasping at indepen- 
dence in Pennsylvania. 

His Last Days. 
It was undoubtedly the existence or threatened approach 
of the illness that proved to be his last, that moved Gottfried, on 
the 8th day of February, T782. to make the following 

will: 

In the Name of God Amen. 

WHEREAS I lived to be old and also sick, yet in Rood understanding 
and faculties of mind therefore I call to mind my end and order as follows: 
My soul I commend to my Creator & Redeemer and my body to the earth in 
.sure hopes that at the great Judgement-Day the same will he raised and 
united again with the soul. Therefore my desire is to be buried in an honest 
and Christian manner. 

Concerning my worldly estate which I have acquired through the bless- 
ing of God I make the order and division in the following manner. 

1 — All my just debts and funeral expences shall be justly paid. 

2 — I bequeath unto my Wedded House- Wife Margaret her seat and 
Dwelling in my Mansion as long as she liveth. Further all the Grain in the 
Barn and on the loft. Further the Grain which is sown out for the ensuing 
year. Further all the meat which I had slaughtered for the use of the 
Family. Further the Hemp and Flax. Further her Bed with what belongs 
thereto. The Cash which I now have my Executors shall take into their

This will was written in German, and both it and the Enolish 
translation, made by Jacob Rillmeyer. are on file in the Re«-ister'.s 
•office, at York. .\ facsimile of Gottfried's sio-nntnre appears on 
pao-e 29. To what extent, if any. he used the En,^lish lano^nao^e. is 
unknown. In his day all the services in the T.iitheran and Reformed 
chnrches were in German, and the church records were in that 
tong^ue. So tenacious is the German blood that today nearly all his 
descendants of the fifth <T^eneration, includinq- the writer, are able 
to speak, if not the pure German, the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect. 

A little more than three months after the execution of the will, 
he breathed his last. The exact day of his death is not known, as 
in those days proofs of death were not recorded in the Register's 
office. In some wav his will had become mislaid, and after a little

time lost in search of it, letters of administration were taken out by- 
John Hay and John Welsch on his estate. Possibly it was known 
to the family that these two gentlemen had been designated as 
Executors, and hence it was agreed that they should administer 
upon the estate. However, a month later the will was found, and 
on June 14 duly probated. 

On September 13, 1787, the Executors filed their account, 
showing, among other matters, that £1794 of Continental and 
Commonwealth money had depreciated to £9 and 13s. Patriotism 
was costly in those days. The account also showed the payment to 
Elizabeth's mother of the forty pounds set aside as her marriage 
portion. Their official acts closed with the conveyance to Henry of

Gottfried Frey was doubtless buried in Zion Reformed church 
yard, or perhaps in the Reformed burying ground on the West side 
of South Duke street, above Princess ; but both of these places of 
sepultre have long since disappeared. It is alleged that those buried 
therein, and unclaimed at the time of the abandonment of the grave 
yard, have been buried in Prospect Hill cemetery; but there is no 
stone to mark Gottfried's resting place, if indeed there can be said 
to be such a spot. Like his fellow A¥eilerite, his grave is unmarked 
and unknown., and it is safe to say that none of his descendants 
even knew his name until this volume was begun. Even the found- 
ing of Freystown has been attributed by the York Count)^ historians 
to other Ereys, and the only publication in which the writer has 
seen the origin of the town correctly stated before the publication 
of this work is in Rowe's Atlas of York, a work of very limited 
circulation. 

Nothing can be said of his features or form. The writer had 
a German say to him that the finest men and handsomest ladies in 
all Germany came from Baden ; but whether Gottfried came up to 
this standard is unknown. From what tradition says of his sons

they were men of medium or even short stature, brown-haired and 
dark-eyed. The positions of trust that he filled from time to time 
indicate that he was esteemed by his neio^hbors and ac(|uaintances, 
and worthy of confidence. In short, he was the kind of a man who 
goes through life without blazing a fiery trail; but doing his work 
as it comes to him, loving his God and serving his fellowman. It 
has been a labor of love to make this effort to preserve his name 
and memory for his many descendants. 

Gottfried's widow was still living on July 27. 1789, since she 
joined with Henry in conveying Lot No. 55 to 18 Adam Frey,^ 
and her name appears on the assessment books during the years 
from 1782 to 1789; but she died between August 25, 1796, the 
date of the conveyance by Schwartz to Kauffelt of the stone house, 
in which her dower is reserved, ^^ and May 21, 1798, when Kauffelt 
conveyed the same property to Cathcart, without mentioning any 
dower.'* She was probably buried besides her husband, and the 
same carelessness on the part of the children or grandchildren that 
allowed his grave to be lost affected her last resting place.

'HOSE were the days when large families were not only the 
rule, but the desire. Where nearly everybody farmed, 
children were a help, not a burden, from the time they 
could help themselves. The land was plenty, and labor 
scarce; so the man blessed with children, who, thrifty and indus- 
trious himself, saw to it that the children were industrious so long 
as they were under the paternal roof, was generally able to leave to 
each of them a farm wherewith to begin life. Gottfried Prey's 
family consisted of the following children: 

Gottfried, b. January 12, 1744. 

Maria Catherine, b. July 22, 1745. 

Anna Maria, b. November 11, 1746. 

Bartel, b. August 20, 1748. 

Julianna Barbara, b. October 23, 1750. 

John George, b. August 13, 1751. 

Conrad, b. March 20, 1754. 

Joseph, b. January 26, 1756. 

Adam, b. August 14, 1760. 

Maria Elizabeth, b. November 15, 1763. 

Samuel, b. 1765. 

Heinrich, b. 1767. 

The first nine of these were baptized in the Lutheran faith, 
and the dates of their birth are taken from the records of Christ 
Church. The baptism of Maria Elizabeth is taken from the records 
of Zion Reformed Church, while the dates of Samuel's and 
Henry's birth are calculated from the time when Gottfried's execu- 
tors executed to them deeds for the land devised to them by their 
father. 



MIS CIIILDKI^N. 63 

It will be noticed that tiiree of (Gottfried's daiij^hters were 
named Maria, the German form of Mary. 1'his was not at all 
unusual in those days when nearly all ^-irls had "Mary" as part of 
their name, and all hoys were "Hans" or "John." 

These children did not all reach maturity. This is inferred 
from the fact that his will only mentions seven of them, and in 
those days it was deemed necessary to at least mention a child in a 
will to bar it from its share under the intestate laws. In his will 
he expressly mentions the desire that his children shall all inherit 
share and share alike, somethin.e: that would not have occurred if 
there were any but those mentioned in the w ill. The children sur- 
viving him were : 

Gottfried (hereafter called (Godfrey). • 

Julianna Barbara. 

John Georo-e (hereafter called Geore^e). 

Adam. 

Maria Elizabeth (hereafter called Elizabeth). 

Samuel. 

Henry. 

From the wording- of the will it is evident that all of his chil- 
dren, excepting possibly Julianna. lived with or near him at the 
time of his death. It was with the idea of having them near, and 
having them remain in the vicinity to comfort his widow, that he 
in a measure divided his land among them prior to his death. (See 
map for location of the plots). How his wishes were carried out 
after his decease the sequel will show.

OUBTLESS there are many persons in York County and 
throughout the State who are also descendants of Gott- 
fried Frev's father, as well as those recorded in these 
pages. The Hilsbach records show that at least one 
brother and one sister accompanied Gk)ttfried to the New World, 
and as Tobias was only 43 years old when he landed in xA.merica, 
and married a new wife some time after his arrival on these shores, 
it is more than probable that there were more children than the 
three of European birth. 

There was a Frederick Frey, of Windsor, who had a son Philip 
born March 23, 1753; Frederick might have been a son of Tobias. 

There was a John George Frey who had a son John Martin 
bom November 3, 1763. He also might have been a son of Tobias, 
and the man after whom Gottfried named his John George. John 
Martin is a replica of Tobias' oldest brother, Hans Martin. 

There was a baptism at Blymeyer's church, on November 7, 
1769, of Julianna Frey, daughter of Bernhard and Catharine Frey, 
at which the witnesses were Gottfried, Godfrey and Julianna Frey. 

John Frey and his wife Magdalena had their son John bap- 
tized on February 21, 1762, and the witnesses were Gottfried and 
Margaret Frey. Witnesses in those days were more than mere 
acquaintances. 

There was a Samuel Frey who appears in Adams County in 
connection with some Linns. How natural that a brother of 
Gottfried's should be found with his wife's relatives, and how far 
this goes to explain Grottfried's act in naming one of his sons 
Samuel. 



COLLATERAL KKLATIONS. 65 

On May 26, 1769, there appears oti the records of Zion's 
Refoniierl Church the ni:irriap;-e of Jacob Giesey and Eva Catharina 
Frey. Adam Geesey, of York, a descendant of Jacob Giesey, says 
that he was told by his father that there existed a relationship 
between their family and 1679 Reuben Frey. The writer can con- 
ceive of no way in which such a relationship <nuld exist save in the 
fact that Eva Catharina was a sister or half sister (born probably 
in 1747) of Gottfried Frey. 

Of the descendants of the known sister of Gottfried. Anna 
Maria, the writer knows nothing. Conrad had at least two chil- 
dren : John Peter, born November 28, 1750, who it is believed is 
the progenitor of some Adams County Freys. of whom two, 
Samuel F. and Harry, are at present living in York ; and Conrad, 
born August 17, 1752, and living in Windsor township in 1784. 

These facts and suppositions are given here for the benefit of 
any one who may feel inclined to take up the work of discovering 
the other descendants of Tobias, the Emigrant, and who, tracing 
his connection thereto, can claim to be a descendant of the man 
who came out of Urdorf,

ODFREY FREY'S name appears in his father's will as his 
oldest son, and from the records of Christ Church we 
find that he was born on January 12, 1744. 'i'he next 
record we find of him is that in November 25, 1767, he 
sold his locksmith establishment to Philip Casper Spangler.' 
References heretofore j^iven indicate that he was Captain of the 2d 
Co., 3d Battalion Militia; and that he was one of the militia who 
apprehended British prisoners (deserters) and brought them to the 
stockade.' He acted in connection with his father as Executor of 
Philip Peters' Estate; and did the actual work while his father was 
Tax Collector. During- these times he lived in York township (now 
the T2th Ward), doubtless on the north side of the present Prospect 
street, as is evidenced by the assessment books and by his father's 
will. 

The death of his father opened a new era in Godfrey's life. 
The fifty acres devised to him were soon sold to George Lottman, 
as shown in the deed from Gottfried's Executors to George 
Frey, wherein one of the adjoiners is described as "lands formerly 
of Godfrey Frey. Jr.. now of George Lottman."' Though assessed 
in 1782, in 1783 he has disappeared from the York township list. 
Where did he go? 

His Departure From York Township. 
In 1789 a Godfrey Frey appears on the assessment list of 
Cumberland township, now a part of i\dams County, where 
a Samuel Frey, perhaps an uncle, was then living. The United 

^Deed Book 3C 369. SDeed Book 2C 77 

?Page 57. 



70 GODFREY FREY. 

States Census for 1790 gives his name in Paradise township, York 
County, with three boys under 16 and three females in the family. 
Then, on March 26, 1795. Thomas Metzler, of Newberry township, 
in presenting- a petition for an inquest of his father's estate, sa^s 
that his mother "has since married Godfrey Frey/' In fhose days 
no widow was obliged to live long in her lonely state. The United 
States Census for 1800 places a Godfrey Frey in Dover township, 
the family consisting of one male over 45, one female over 45, and 
one girl under 10. 

The first step, of course, was to look in the Register's office 
for any estate of Godfrey Frey ; but his name was not to be found. 
Inquiry in the Adams County records proved equally futile. No 
search was made in Bedford County, probably because such mat- 
ters are usually expensive, and also because the writer was so busy 
with two other sons of Gottfried that he gave little thought of 
Godfrey. So the question of finding any of his descendants was 
left in abeyance. Then occurred one of the strange coincidences 
that sometimes happen outside of story books and give color to the 
old saying that "Truth is stranger than fiction." 

A young mining engineer in the Far West, probably in the 
leisure hours of evening, recalled some stories his grandmother had 
told him about an ancestor of hers who fought with Washington 
and who hailed from York, Pa., being the builder of the first Dutch 
Presbyterian church in that old town. Realizing that traditions 
become dimmed with age and finally entirely disappear, he thought 
he would do a little investigating for himself and find out how 
much of truth there was in the oft-told tale. 

Knowing nobody in York, he addressed a letter to the Pastor of 
the Dutch Presbyterian Church of that city. The letter was re- 
ceived by the Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of York, 
and by him turned over to the Librarian of the York County 
Historical Society, Mr. Geo. R. Prowell. Mr. Prowell, knowing 
the writer was engaged in the work of tracing the descendants of

HIS STORY. 71 

Gottfried Frey, kindly handed the letter to hini, and thus was started 
corres|)ondence and personal visits which resulted in the discovery 
of the people whose names are recorded in this section. 

Reconciling Tradition and Fact. 

To 1 1333 Mrs. Sarah Flizabeth Chaney, 11411 Mrs. Annie 
Virginia Waters and 1 1422 Mary Yeakle. the writer is indebted 
for what little information of Godfrey and his children he has been 
able to jM-ocure. Mrs. Chaney knew that her father was descended 
from Margaret Frey, and was able to give some information con- 
cernino^ the Koontz familv. She also had heard of the tradition 
that Godfrey came from Freystown and was one of the builders of 
the Reformed church, which in early times was described as the 
Dutch Presbyterian church. There had also been told to her the 
story that Godfrey had fought with Washington, and one of her 
descendants referred to the fact that history told of a Colonel 
Fry who accompanied Washington to Fort Duquesne. Miss 
Yeakle modified this tradition by saying that it was not Godfrey, 
the father of Sarah Frey, but one of his brothers, who was the 
military man. 

The story about the trip to Fort Duquesne. if true, would be 
fatal to the 1 1 theory, since 1 1 was only seven years old when 
Washington made the attempted journey to Fort Duquesne; but 
the name of the Colonel Fry who was to have charge of the expe- 
dition which never reached the fort was Joshua Fry. of Virginia, 
described by history as "an English gentleman of worth and edu- 
cation,"^ a man old enough to have acquired a reputation, and 
answering Washington's own request that the command be given 
to an elder and more experienced soldier. It is hardly probable 
that Joshua had a brother who would have been a father as late as 
1789, the date of the birth of one of Godfrey's children. Besides, 
Joshua is described as an "English" gentleman, whereas the father 
of Margaret and Sarah was of German speech. 



SIrving's Washington, Vol. i, 78. 



72. GODFREY FREY. 

Godfrey Frey, of York, fills the military tradition, as amended 
by the "brother" story, since i6 George Frey undoubtedly saw 
military service during the Revolutionary period ; though not a trip 
to Fort Duquesne as Colonel commanding, and whether he per- 
sonally saw or fought under Washington may well be doubted. 
Returning soldiers often garnish their tales for the benefit of ad- 
miring nephews and nieces, and these stories lose nothing by repe- 
tition and years, and so the actual war experiences of George Frey, 
be they much or little, may well have given rise to great stories of 
sacrifice and heroism. 

After the foregoing paragraph was in type the writer was 
fortunate enough to have the opportunity to inspect a copy of the 
"Biography of Joshua Fry and Census of his Descendants," which 
is in the Congressional Eibrary at Washington, D. C. The name 
Godfrey does not appear as a descendant of Joshua, and nothing 
seems to be known of his brothers. Hence, the connection of the 
Godfrey Frey. of Montgomery County, with the "fine old English 
gentleman" of Washington's time, is a myth. 

The reference to the building of the first Reformed (or Dutch 
Presbyterian, as the Reformed churches were frequently called in 
those days) Church, is fulfilled by the appearance of the name of 
Godfrey Frey as one of the charter members of the Zion Reformed 
church, of York. This may have been either Godfrey or his father 
Gottfried, since both doubtless were much interested in the erec- 
tion of the church of their faith. 

The re-appearance of family names is always a sure indication 
of relationship. Godfrey Frey (of Montgomery County) had a 
daughter named Margaret, the name of it's mother, and Margaret 
named her only sons Godfrey and George, the latter being the name 
of the younger brother of 1 1 , who actually was a Revolutionary 
soldier and evidently the hero of the "soldier Uncle" stories. 

Mrs. Waters was particularly strong on the tradition that 
Godfrey Frey had owned the land on which part of Freystown was 
built, and there was an interest in it for his descendants, as he had 



HIS STORY. 73 

never sold it. So strongly was this tradition impressed on the 
family that one of them asked tiie writer whether it was possible 
to recover any part of it at this time. 

This, to the mind of the writer, is the most convincing proof 
of the identity of the Godfrey Frey of Montgomery County, with 
the 1 1 Godfrey Frey of York. We have seen that Godfrey Frey 
did own fifty acres of such land. There is no deed from him for 
any land on record, only the recital in a deed between other parties 
that the tract conveyed adjoined "lands formerly of Godfrey Frey, 
Jr., now of George Luttman." This was in the days of ground 
rents, and Godfrey may have thought he was selling his patrimony 
subject to the payment of such an annual rental, when he perhaps 
actually sold it outright. He evidently thought that legal proceed- 
ings would restore to him his property, a belief which with advanc- 
ing years would become a settled conviction, to be told and retold 
to and by his descendants with the additions and exaggerations that 
always accompany tales of fortunes to come from past ancestors. 

It is believed that all these circumstances, some slight in them- 
selves and some of great weight, taken together, furnish irrefutable 
proof of the identity of the Godfrey Frey, of Montgomery County, 
as the oldest son of Gottfried Frey, the young emigrant. The com- 
mon name and religion, the disappearance at one point and appear- 
ance at the other, the family names, the military brother, the church 
building, and, above all, the ownership of land in Freystown, far 
outweigh the tradition of connection with Joshua Fry. a tradition 
unsupported by any fact and flatly contradicted by time and the 
published biography of the man with whom connection was claimed. 
It is questionable whether many statements made in family histories 
of descent or connection with persons more than one hundred and 
fifty years ago are as firmly established by as competent and con- 
clusive evidence as this assertion that the descendants of Godfrey 
Frey, of Montgomery County, Md., belong in a book of the descend- 
ants of Gottfried Frey, of York. Pa. 



74 GODFREY FREY. 

His Children. 

From 113 1 1 George Andrew Gilbert the writer learned that 
Godfrey Frey lived in Montgomery County, Md. The United 
States Census of that count)^ for 1790 records Godfrey Fry in 
Montgomery County, Md., but mentions no township or district. 
In 1800, according to the same authority, he was the only male in 
the family, with one girl under 16, one under 26 and one female, 
doubtless his wife, over 45. 

The Godfrey Frey of Paradise township, given in the census 
of 1790, and the Godfrey Frey of Dover township, given in the 
census of 1800, may have been identical. He may also be the 
same Godfrey who in 1804 had a daughter Catharine baptized in 
Zion's Reformed Church, and who married Thomas Metzler's 
widow. 

On September 24, 1782, there was baptized, in Zion's 
Reformed Church, Salome, daughter of Gottfried and Margaret 
Frey. This could hardly have been a child of the first Gottfried, 
owing to his wife being nearly 60 years of age. It probably is the 
original form of Godfrey, and may refer to 11 Godfrey, or to the 
Godfrey of Paradise township. The fact that 1 1 Godfrey was then 
in York township has led us to count this Salome as one of his 
children. 

In this connection may be mentioned the fact that Mrs. Waters 
has a faint recollection of the name Salome as belonging to the 
family. Her first impulse was that the girl known as "Sally" Frey, 
and who afterward married Charles A. Galezio, was really named 
Salome. This, however, is impossible, as the Salome baptized in 
York in 1782, as the daughter of Gottfried and Margaret, could not 
have been the Sarah Frey who was born in 1789. But it is highly 
probable that the name of one of her grandmothers' sisters was more 
or less frequently mentioned in Mrs. Waters' presence. 

No other York County records of any children of this Godfrey 
Frey can be found. As above stated, the Census of 1800 gives him 
with one girl under 16, one under 26, and a female, doubtless his 



HIS STORY. 75 

wife, over 45. Mrs. Chancy and Mrs. Waters both have recollec- 
tions (or rather, have traditions) of the names of four children, 
Mary, John, Margaret and Sarah, and Mrs. Waters said that accord- 
ing to what she had been told, there were quite a number of other 
children. 

Both of these ladies are positive that Mary attained a great age, 
Mrs. Waters putting it at least 107, while Mrs. Chaney thought 1 1 1 
was the correct figure. Mrs. Waters says that during the Civil War 
a message was received from Mary, who was then living in the West, 
and at that time she was about a hundred years old. .According to 
this she must have been born about 1765. which fixes her status as 
the first child of Godfrey, since he was born in 1744. 

Marv was tw^ice married, first to a Mr. Porter, a man of means, 
who left her in comfortable circumstances. By him she had one 
child, a daughter named Elizal)eth. who married a Mr. Lodge and 
moved to Ohio. The only additional fact known concerning Mrs. 
Lodge is that is was with her that Mary was living in 1865. Mary's 
second matrimonial adventure was not so fortunate, as her husband, 
a Mr. Heater, misniannged both his affairs and her's, and finally 
carried her oflf to Kentucky, where she lived luitil after his death, 
when, as stated, she went to her daughter's. 

Mrs. Waters is of the opinion that John was older than lier 
grandmother, since his grandchildren were older than she. We have 
therefore treated him as the second of Godfrey's children, or rather 
as coming in somewhere in the fifteen years between Mary and 
Margaret. As no boy is mentioned as a member of God f rev's 
family in 1800, it is likely that John was at that time the head of a 
family himself, and therefore was probably born sometime before 
1778. This view is further borne out by the fact that this same 
Census of 1800 gives a J. Frye in Frederick County, between 26 and 
45 years of age. with a wife under 26. and two boys and two girls, 
all under 10 years. The residence and children agree exactly with 
Mrs. Waters' recollection of the familv. 



'j6 GODFREY FREY. 

According to her statement, John Frey Hved about two miles 
from the present city of Frederick, on a good-sized farm, was mar- 
ried to a Miss Siars and had four children, William, Frederick, 
Mary and Elizabeth. Frederick went to Steubensville, Ohio, and 
of the others nothing is known save of Mary. She married a man 
named Brubaker, and had six children, Ann, Isabel, Sarah, William, 
Calvin and Isaac. Ann was married to William Witmore. At the 
time these pages were printed, nothing could be learned of any of 
the Brubakers. 

Margaret, presumed to be born about 1780, is treated herein- 
after as the third child, since any attempt to fix her nimiber accur- 
ately is impossible, in the absence of any information concerning the 
possible issue between 1765 and 1774. 

Between the presumed date of Margaret's birth and the known 
time of Sarah's advent comes at least Salome; perhaps others. As 
she evidently did not reach maturity (or both Mrs. Chaney and 
Mrs. Waters would have heard more definitely concerning her) she 
is not numbered in the subsequent record of Godfrey's children. 

Possibly the "baby" of the family was SalHe, for at the time of 
her birth Godfrey was a man of 45, and there are no traditions of 
any children after her. She is hereinafter numbered as the fourth 
child. 

Another circumstance corroborating the ii theory is the fact 
that John Frey, son of Godfrey, of Montgomery, was a firm Presby- 
terian, and the Presbyterian Church, especially in those daA^'s, was 
simply the English speaking form of the Reformed Church. The 
faith of the charter member of the First Reformed Church at York 
was transmitted to the Presbyterian of Frederick County. 

Circumstances and Death. 

Nothing is known of Godfrey's financial circumstances. As 
before stated he was a locksmith by trade, since he sold his stock 
in 1765. He lived on his father's land some time before the latter's 
death, and in some way or other it got away from him. The assess-

77 



merits of Montgomery county before 1800 are not in existence. The 
county records show no evidence of any conveyance of land to or 
from him, except a bill of sale for a small amount of personal 
property. 

The date and place of his death are also imknown ; though 
Mrs. Waters thinks he is buried somewhere near Washington. That 
this meagre sketch of him appears at all is due to the curiosity of 
the young mining engineer; that no more of him can be said is 
owing to the lack of any records or knowledge of where to search 
for any further information.

JT IS rather an inauspicious beginning of a book of the de- 
scendants of Gottfried Frey that is set forth in this first 
genealogical section. Not only was the finding of God- 
frey himself purely a piece of good fortune, and not the re- 
sult of any ingenuity or hard work on the part of the writer ; but 
the names and number of the children of Godfrey are matters of 
doubt, and even after the children are located many of their de- 
scendants failed to furnish any information. This is deplorable: 
but the writer feels that he has done all that could be expected of 
him in the matter. 

Margaret Frey has been placed as the third of Godfrey's 
children, because her second child was born in 1800, when she was 
probably at least 20 years old, thus fixing her birth before the year 
1780. 

Margaret married Jacob Koontz, who was a native of Amster- 
dam. Jacob was a blacksmith, but we do not know the day of his 
birth or death. They lived in or near Frederick, Md. Margaret's 
married life was comparatively short, as she died soon after giving 
birth to her second and third children, a pair of twins, in 1800. Her 
known descendants are :

ARAH ANN CATHARINE FREY. the fourth child of 
Godfrey, was born in Montgomery County, Md., May 
I, 1789. Somewhat to the sin-prise, if not annoyance, 
of her conservative German father, when she was but 
sixteen years old she married an Italian music teacher, Charles 
Antonio Cazemere Galezio, born at Turin, Italy, March 4, T773. 
He was a highly educated man, having been fitted for the priesthood; 
but left Rome and came to America, where he secured a position of 
some sort in the Navy, serving under Commodore Decatur. He 
spoke seven languages, and acted as interpreter for some of the 
foreign Legations. Two years after marriage he was ordered on a 
naval cruise, and their first child was born at Sandy Springs. Mont- 
gomery County. Md.. (presumably Godfrey's home) during the 
father's absence, and was three years old before she saw him. The 
other children were born at Frederick. Md.. where, after a little 
over fifteen years of married life, Charles died, in 1821. His widow 
survived him until October 9. 1833. From this union sprang the 
following descendants :

assist in the household duties and to help in rearing the six children 
that came after her advent into the family. Those were the days of 
hard work, with little recreation; yet with all that Julianna found 
time to become acquainted with the young men of her neighborhood. 

Immediately adjoining Gottfried Frey's farm on the East was 
the farm of Jacob Hiestand, whose oldest son, Abraham, found 
much pleasure in the society of his fair neighbor. The constant 
influx of emigrants made girls none too plenty, and so when 
Julianna arrived at a marriageable age Abraham made sure of the 
girl whom he had known since childhood, and of whose worth he 
felt perfectly assured. They were married by the pastor of Zion 
Reformed Church on September 14, 1771. 

Valuable Assistance. 

The fact of Julianna's birth was found in the records of Christ 
Church, and her marriage was ascertained from a search of the 
Reformed Church records. Gottfried's will also mentions her mar- 
riage. A study of the Register's office gave the will of Jacob Hies- 
tand and the name of Abraham as one of his sons ; but the earliest 
obtainable assessment books of York County do not give an Abra- 
ham Hiestand. So, as in Godfrey's case, came the question, "Where 
did they go ?'' 



92 JULIANNA BARBARA FREY. 

Further search revealed a will of an Abraham Hiestand, as far 
down as i860, with a large amount of property, and a numerous 
family. The will itself, in its reference to children and grandchil- 
dren, indicated that the testator was somewhat advanced in years; 
but more conclusive than the references was the date of death, which 
showed that if this was the Abraham of Jacob he must have lived 
to be over 100 years old. 

The writer for more than forty years has been well acquainted 
with John S. Hiestand, living a few miles East of York, and to him 
he repaired one evening for further light on the subject, not at all 
averse to the hope of finding that genial gentleman to be "in the 
freundschaft." But that idea was soon driven out of his mind when 
he was informed that the Abraham Hiestand of the will was not yet 
born in the year that Julianna married her Abraham. 

However, the man who brought disappointment also carried 
good cheer. He told the writer that one W. H. H. Turner, of 
Hustead, O., had for over five years been hunting up the Hiestand 
family, and doubtless he could tell him something about Abraham 
Hiestand, if anybody could. .So to Mr. Turner was the problem 
taken, and from him, and the people mentioned by him, was ob- 
tained what information is here g;iven of Julianna's descendants. 
As in Godfrey's case, some answered cheerfully and fully, even 
volunteering information; others answered not at all. There was 
one particularly aggravating case, where one party dem.anded money 
as compensation for telling all she knew, which she assured the 
writer was a "lot ;" but when a small sum was sent her she became 
as dumb as an oyster, keeping both the money and her "lot" of 
information. Thus is the work of compiling a family book made a 
thing of joy forever. 

It seems that some time after their marriage there appeared 
in Shepherdstown, W. Va., Abraham Hiestand and Julianna Frey 
Hiestand. To this couple there were born at least two sons, John 
and Daniel. Daniel was not born until 1790, and it seems strange 
that in the twenty-eight years of married life there were not more 



THE MARRIKI) l).\l (il ri'I'.R

than two children. In fact, Mr. Turner has been told that there was 
at least one daug^hter, but no one seei7is able to j2:ive her married 
name, if she was married, or to locate any of her descendants. 

Daniel is said to have been born in Washini^on County. Md., 
which lies across the Potomac river from Shepherdstown. Whether 
this indicates a removal or whether Shepherdstown was at that time 
the postoffice for that portion of Washin^on County the v\ ritcr is 
unable to say. John's birthplace is unknown. 

Abraham died in 1799, as^cd about 55 years, as he was over 21 
years old when his father died in 1767. After his death Tulianna 
went to Baltimore, doubtless because her brother Samuel was iiving^ 
there at that time, and died in that city. The time of her death and 
place of burial is unknown. 

Both John and Daniel were the fathers of what in these days 
would be considered large families, rind it is probable that the pages 
of this book would be considerably increased in number if the other 
children of Julianna could have been discovered ; but the writer felt 
that in justice to his chances of finishing the work, and out of con- 
sideration for those who were awaiting its appearance he could not 
afford to wait any longer for what might never be found. 

The same confusion of spelling the name appears here as with 
the Frey family. The wTiter has followed what he believes to be 
the better orthography, save in those few instances where he knows 
the other methods prevailed.

(3^(^ NOWING John to be the older of the only two children of 
Julianna about which the writer has been able to learn 
anything, he is here treated as the first child of 15. It is 
just possible that the word "knowing," used above, is too 
positive a term ; but as John's first child was born about 1812, while 
Daniel was married in that year, it looks as if the fonner might be 
the elder of the two boys, although it doesnt' always follow that the 
elder child is the first married. The writer has adopted Mr. Tur- 
ner's order of birth of the two children, believing that he had some 
good reason for putting them in this way. 

About all that is known of John is that a number of his children 
were born in Hagerstown, Md. ; that he moved to what was then 
called Franklintown (now Columbus) Ohio, in 1830, the trip being 
made in wagons. His wife's maiden name was Elsie Martin. When 
he died or where he was buried has not been ascertained, nor are 
either of these facts known concerning his wife. 

There has been great difficulty experienced in getting informa- 
tion about his descendants. Much of the following, especially that 
part which only gives names, has been obtained from Mr. Turner, 
who is still compiling the Hiestand records, and doubtless will do so 
to the day of his death. The other information has been secured by 
writing to peo]3le whose addresses were obtained either from Mr. 
Turner or from some one of their relatives. It is given as the best 
the writer was able to do under the circumstances. So little data 
has been furnisTied that even the order of birth of his children is 
uncertain, the succession given by Mr. Turner being manifestly 
erroneous in some instances. As numbered herein it is approxi-

mately correct, and as there was sticli unvvillinc;iiess on the part of 
John's descendants to give any information or assistance in the 
matter they have no standing to complain of nn'stakes or omissions.

ANTEL HIESTAND, i)laced by Mr. Turner as the yonngfer 
of the two known children of Jnlianna. and therefore 
treated here as her second child, was born in Washinsfton 
County, Md.. on Feb. 3, 1790. This information was 
obtained from 15292 Emily L. Hiestand, who personally knew her 
grandfather and furnished the writer the photoo^raph from which 
the illustration of the widely known Methodist preacher was made. 
In early life he learned the trade of blacksmith, which he followed 
for many years. He was an earnest member of the Methodist 
church, and in 1840 was made a "local preacher" in that denomi- 
nation, doing- good work. 

In 181 2 he married Mary Koontz, daus^hter of Jacob and 
Mary Koontz. of Frederick County. Md.. and their early married 
life seems to have been spent between the two parental homes, as 
the first child was born in Washincrton County, the second in 
Frederick County and the third and fourth in Washino^ton County. 
About 1830 the family moved to Mansfield, O., where the remaining 
years of his life were passed in peaceful and tranquil service. His 
wife, born on Oct. 20, 1795. died nt Mansfield. O.. Sept. 7, 1875, 
and Daniel passed away Feb. 4. 1878. 

Eleven children were born to them, as follows : 

1521 MARY H JEST AND, b. Aug. 1812: date of death 
unknown. She married, in 1832. John Downs, a farmer, of Mans- 
field, O., whose residence was known as "The Preachers' Home," 
but whether this was because Daniel lived with them, or because 
they entertained preachers is unknown. Only scant information 
has been obtained about their children.

JOHN GEORGE FREY. the sixth child of Gottfried, early 
in life dropped the "praenomon" John, in accordance with 
the spirit of the times and the country. The settlers 
arriving from the Fatherland were nearly all blessed with 
this peculiar custom of naming every boy John and every daughter 
Maria (Mary). Gottfried, though giving the "John" to but one 
of his boys, had three daughters bearing the name of Maria. Two 
of these died young, and the third was known as Elizabeth, having 
discarded the Maria. 

Finding of George. 

There is in common use a character designated as a hyphen 
(-) which plays an important part in written or printed language. 
Whenever, at the end of a line, all of a word cannot be completed 
therein, the hyphen is used to connect the part at the end of the line 
with that at the beginning of the next. 

Thus far has been given the story of the Freys from the man 
who crossed the border between Switzerland and Baden, to the 
founder of Freystown, including two of his children. But the con- 
nection of Gottfried Frey with the American born Freys treated in 
these pages depends almost entirely on the identification of the 
George Frey known to have been the husband of Mary Magdalena 
Ziegle, with the son George named in Gottfried's will ; he must be 
shown to be the tie that binds Gottfried and his ancestors to the 
Freys of the present day. 

As narrated in previous pages, the writer knew the name of 
his grandfather, having the honor of bearing it, and he discovered 



114 GEORGE FREY. 

the name of the man whom he afterwards knew to be his great- 
great-grandfather in the office of the Register of Wills of York 
County; but the link which connected the two was an unknown 
quantity for many years. He remembers well, in his boyhood days, 
of asking his father the name of grandfather, and great-grandfather, 
which were both given: but further than this his father could not 
tell him. When, forty-odd years afterward, he started on the pres- 
ent task, the conversation was recalled, but the name of the great- 
grandfather had escaped his memory. Nor could he find any of the 
kindred that could shed any light on this subject. 

Believing the Freys to have always been Lutherans, and know- 
ing that German was their native tongue, the writer early turned 
to the records of Christ Lutheran Church, the oldest church in York, 
for information concerning his forebears. These records, for the 
first seventy-five years, are all in German, and the earliest ones hard 
to decipher. Genealogists owe a heavy debt to Mr. E. W. Spangler, 
who had these records translated and the translations deposited in 
the rooms of the York County Historical Society, thus not only 
making them intelligible to non-German seekers; but preserving a 
copy which would be invaluable in case of the destruction of the 
original by fire, an event not at all improbable, considering the fact 
that they are not preserved in fire-proof safes or vaults. 

These records, as previously stated^, give the names of a number 
of the children of Gottfried Frey, among them being John George. 
In Gottfrieds' will* the John is dropped, only George being used. 
The church records, the will and various deeds' show conclusively 
that there lived a George Frey, who was the son of Gottfried ; but 
it did not necessarily follow that he was the father of 167 Samuel, 
the writer's grandfather, although the place of residence and the 
Lutheran church membership seemed confirmatory of that fact. 
This latter confirmatory fact, however, was rudely destroyed when 
it was later discovered that Gottfried became a member of the Re-

THE HYPHEN. 115 

formed cluiroli, his name appearing as one of the sijB^ners of the 
Iveformed Church Articles on July i, 1754. 

Further on, however, these same Lutheran church records con- 
tain the following sigxiificant entry : 

Samuel, b. Dec. 14, 1790; son of George and Magdalena I'rey. 

This settled, beyond controversy, the fact that 167 Sainuel Prey 
was a son of a George and Magdalenn Frey, the date of birth as 
given above agreeing within one day of the date of birth of 167 as 
calculated from the record on his tombstone, which gives date of 
death and age, the discrepancy of a day being readily accounted for 
I)y an error in substraction. 

The mention of a George Frey in the will of Gottfried, and the 
fact that George was named by the church records as father of 
Samuel, naturally led to a search of the court records for anything 
connected with that name. From the Register's Oflice it is evident 
that however much real estate George Frey owned in his lifetime, 
at his death there was nothing for the courts to deal with. His 
name, in connection with any estate of his, could not be found, but 
in 1806 the name of Samuel Frey appeared on the index to the 
records, and reference to the proper book revealed the fact that he 
asked for the appointment of his brother Jacob as his guardian. 
Immediately following that statement is this : 

Mar. 26. 1806. Jacob Frey, brother of Frederick Frey, an 
orphan minor child, son of George Frey, deceaserl, presented his 
petition asking for the appointment of a guardian of said minor, 
and the court appointed Gottlieb Ziegle as guardian''. 

The name Ziegle at once raised the query as to his connection 
with the Frey family and what the reason for his appointment, 
rather than some one else. Reference to tlie Register's office showed 
the existence of the will of a Gottlieb Ziegle. and an inspection of 
that document led to the discovery that the testator's daughter 
Magdalena was married to George Frey. This explained why 
Gottlieb Ziegle (2d), an uncle of the minor, was appointed his 
guardian.

ii6 GEORGE FREY. 

In the records of Zion's Reformed Church, of York, Pa., are 
found the following : 

On October 6, 1776, was baptized a child of George Frey and 
his wife, Maria Magdalena, 6 Sept. 20, named Maria Magdalena. 
Witnesses : Gottlieb Ziegle and wife Barbara. 

Born Feb. 23, 1782, Elizabeth, daughter of George and Magda- 
lena Frey. 

Jacob, baptized Nov. 14, 1784; born October 22, 1784. Par- 
ents, George Frey and Maria Magdalena. 

Daniel, born January 1 1 , 1 786 ; son of George and Magdalena 
Frey. 

The fact that Gottlieb Ziegle and his wife appeared as witnesses 
to the baptism of Oct. 6, 1776, is additional evidence that they were 
closely related to the young couple. The theory formed from the 
guardian appointment, the will and the Zion Reformed Church 
entries was established as a fact by certain additional court records. 

In a subsequent chapter, under the title 161 Catharine Frey, 
is given the history of the discovery of the records pertaining to 
the estate of Gottlieb Ziegle, (2d), who died intestate and unmar- 
ried, whereupon his estate descended to his brothers and sisters, 
and the children of such brothers and sisters as were deceased. 
Among the names of his heirs appear those of the children of Mag- 
dalena Ziegle, married to George Frey: George, Jacob, Daniel, 
Samuel and Frederick Frey, and Catharine Metzel, Mary Grant 
and Elizabeth Weigel. Another record^ names "Mary, eldest sister 
of Gottlieb Ziegle (2d), married to George Frey;" and the will of 
Gottlieb Ziegle (ist) mentions his daughter "Magdalena, married 
to George Frey."^ As the writer had been told by his lather that 
Jacob Frey was a brother of Samuel's, as the names of the other 
brothers as recalled by 16321 William Frey and 16735 Marcellus 
Frey agree exactly with those given in the above list as those of the 
sons of George Frey, and as the names in Zion's Reformed church 
record are also given, this was persuasive evidence of descent from 
George Frey.

Two Men or One? One Wife or Two? 

But the discovery of Gottfried Frey, and the question of the 
relationship existing with the children of the former schfX)lniastcr^ 
led to the investigation of the identity of the son of Gottfried with 
the husband of the Ziegle girl. And in this connection ihc dual 
name of the maid tended to strengthen the idea that there were two 
Georges. There are on record five deeds executed by (ieorge Frey : 

Deed dated .April 11, 177^^ from George Frey, yeoman, of 
York town, and Magdalena. his wife, for a lot on South George 
street, now known as Nos. 17 and ig. In the deed to George for 
this lot he is described as a "saddler, of York town^ 

Deed dated May 6, 17S3, from George Frey. of York loun. 
Innkeeper, and Mary, his wife, for George's share of the real estate 
which he received from his father. Gottfried, thus establishing the 
identity of this particular George as the son of Gottfried^ 

Deed dated January 6. 1785, from George Frey, of York town. 
Innkeeper, and Magdalena, his wife, for the western half of lot No. 
58, property now known as Nos. 10 and 12 East Market street^" 

Deed dated Feb. 23, 1787, from George Frey, of York town, 
Innkeeper, and Magdalena, his wife, for Fot No. 199, now known as 
Nos. T38 and 144 South Duke street". 

Deed dated Feb. 11. 1797. from George Frey, of York town- 
ship, (no occupation given) and Magdalena, his wife, for their 
interest (one- fourth) in the stone house between the house in 
which they lived in T779 and the tavern stand on the corner. This 
stone house stood on the site of what is now No. 7-1 1 South George 
Street'*. 

From these deeds it would seem that there were three George 
Freys. so far as occupations were concerned, (or four, if we count 
the lack of an occupation), and two wives, a Mary and a Magdalene. 
But many a man, with a trade, gets the idea that there is easy money 
in innkeeping, and later finds that he has made a sorry mistake. 
Nor is it at all unlikely that Gottlieb Ziegle, himself an innkeeper,, 
influenced his son-in-law in taking up the btisiness.

ii8 GEORGE FREY. 

The German custom of calling all girls Mary^' prevailed in the 
Ziegel family, since the only two girls were named Mary Magdalena 
and Mary Dorothy, This we know from several records : the bap- 
tismal records of Maria Magdalena and Jacob Frey; in his will 
Gottlieb speaks of Mary Dorothy'-*; one record refers to'^ "Mary, 
eldest sister of Gottlieb Ziegel (2d) married to George Frey;" the 
last of the above cited deeds describes her as Magdalena, wife of 
George Frey: and the witness to the baptism of one of the children 
of Catharine Metzel ( a daughter of George Frey) was Magdalena 
Frey, while with another child of the same mother the witness was 
Mary Frey. Hence, the fact of the two different names appearing 
as the wife of the grantor neither shows a different George nor yet 
that he had two wives: but that Maria (anglici7ed Mary) Magda- 
lena was probabhT- most usually called Magdalena, and Mary was 
the name the more pimctilious scrivener used. 

It will be noticed that in all the above conveyances save the last 
George is described as of York town. The assessment books from 
1775 to 1797 give the following: 

In York township, George in 1778. '79. '82, '84, '85, '86, '88, 
'89, '95 and '97. 

In York town, in '75, '78, '84, '85. '88, ^89. '92, '93. 

While it might appear from these assessments in two districts 
"that there were two Georges, A'-et this could easily be explained by 
the fact of a man having property in the two |)laces. Thus, in the 
^/ery deed in which he is named as the son of Gottfried, and con- 
veys his land in York township, he is described as innkeeper, of 
York town. From the recorded conveyances, and there may have 
l^een as many others that were not recorded, for there was much 
laxity in this respect in those days, it is evident that George handled 
some real estate in his time, and as he would be assessed wherever 
lie had any of the soil it can readily be understood that his name 
might appear in different places in different years, or even in the 
same year. 

JSPage 113. -^O. C. Docket M 91. 

J4Will Book D 195. 



THE HYPHEN. 119 

It is worthy also to note that while in 1789. according to the 
above assessments, there is apparently a George Frey in York town- 
ship and also in York town, the U. S. Census for 1790 gives only 
one George Frey as head of a family in the entire county, and places 
him in York town. 

So far as the writer has been able to discover there were only 
two lines of Freys in the neighborhood of York at the time covered 
by the above conveyances, that of Gottfried and that of Martin. 
The latter left only two sons to survive him, Tobias and Martin. 
Tobias, the elder, settled in Dover township. Martin, born in 1739, 
married Anna Maria Small ; but evidently could not have been the 
father of a son who was married before 1773. In fact, according 
to his will, he had but one son, named Martin, and three daughters. 
It is against all probability that in a territory as sparsely settled as 
York town and York towaiship there should have been two men by 
the same name, of the same occupation, and with wives bearing the 
same Christian name. 

Two more things bear out this theory of the identity of the two 
Georges : Gottlieb Ziegle's land adjoined that of Gottfried Frey, 
and doubtless the matter of propinquity had much to do with the 
union of the two families. And from two descendants of lo Adam 
Frey the writer heard the tradition of the relationshiy) of that line 
to that of 16 George, a relationship which could only come about 
through a common descent from Gottfried. 

Therefore, it was with perfect assurance that the Avriter bottled 
up the demon of doubt, and accepted Gottfried Frey as his great- 
great-grandfather, and the ancestor of the people whose names are 
recorded in this volume, feeling that this was not mere matter of 
assertion or belief, but actually established by incontrovertible 
evidence. 

A Gratifying Discovery. 

After having accepted this theory, at first with much misgiving 
and later wn'th more confidence as the various records above men- 



I20 GEORGE FREY. 

tioned were found, two years after the first steps were taken in 
tracing the other descendants of Gottfried Frey the writer was 
surprised and gratified to learn of a remarkable piece of evidence 
confirming what the foregoing had built up, and assuring him that 
three-fourths of the work spent in this volume was not resting on a 
foundation that might at any moment be swept away by the dis- 
covery that there were after all two Georges, that the line from 
Kaspar to Gottfried had naught to do with the children of Mary 
Magdalena Ziegle, and that there was no connection between 
Godfrey, Julianna and Adam on the one hand and George on the 
other. 

Practically all the correspondence in the compiling of the in- 
formation in this book was done on stationery bearing at the top a 
facsimile of the signature of Gottfried Frey to his will, which fac- 
simile appears on the title page of this work. One day there came 
into the writer's office 161314 Robert F. Metzel, of Washington, 
D. C., and stated that he had in his possession an old Bible, which 
had belonged to his great-grandmother i6t Catharine Metzel, and 
that in it there was a piece of paper containing the signature of 
Gottfried Frey. Mr. Metzel was positive that the signature was the 
same as the facsimile on the letter head received by him from the 
writer. The Bible also contained a line "J^cob Frey's Bible," and 
the name Catharine Frey, written in German. There is also an 
entry giving the date of birth of Catharine Frey, something the 
writer did not have before. 

There is nothing to show positively that this Bible ever be- 
longed to Gottfried Frey, and as it contains no other reference to 
him, and gives no data concerning any of his family, it is not likely 
that it was used by him. The claim of Jacob Frey, a younger 
brother of Catharine's, that it was his, and her maiden name appear- 
ing in it. shows that the book was doubtless in the home of George 
Frey before Catharine's marriage, possibly it was presented to her 
by her grandfather (she was seven years old at the time of his 



THE HYPHEN. 121 

death), which might account for his name being in it; or, it may 
actually have belonged to him, retained by his widow until her death, 
about 1797, and then came to Catharine as the oldest grandchild, 
or at least as the oldest grandchild living in or near York, 

But whether ever in his possession or not, the fact of the leaf 
bearing his signature shows the close connection between Gottfried 
Frey and Catharine Metzel, and proves indeed that George Frey was 
the son of the immigrant from Weiler. Unfortunately, the leaf has 
been lost, so that no comparison of the two signatures can now be 
made. 

Additional Evidence. 

When these pages were being prepared the writer referred to 
the original records of Zion's Reformed Church to confirm what he 
had before gathered from the translations made by orders of Mr. 
Spangler, and thus found some of the records given above. But he 
also found two other significant entries : 

Margaretha (wife of) Godfried Frey did 28 of *^eptember, 
1773, (the writing here is unintelligible, but doubtless means pre- 
sented for baptism) George Frey, son of John George. 

On 6th of December was baptized child of George Frey, born 
22d of November, 1778. Witness. Gottfried Frey, Sr., child named 
George. 

i' Here appear Margaretha and Gottfried as interested in the bap- 

tism of two young Georges. Of course, it may be said that it is not 
denied that Gottfried had a son George, in whose children he would 
naturally be interested ; but what became of that George if he is not 
the George who married Mary Magdalena Ziegle, and is it likely 
that again there would have been the coincidence of another George 
Frey having a son George about the same time that the husband of 
Magdalena Ziegle had a son George, for the year here given (1778) 
is just about the time that George, the eldest son (reaching matur- 
ity) of Magdalena Ziegle, must have been born, to fit in with 
the known dates of the births of her other children, and also about

lihe time that the man who was the father of 163 1 Charles Frey^ 
t>orn in 1801 and known to be a grandson of Magdalena Ziegle, 
must have entered into this world. 

Surely only the most unreasonably skeptical can have any fur- 
ther doubts about the identity of the two men, and that the father 
of 167 Samuel Frey is really the son of Gottfried Frey, and is the 
hyphen connecting the known Freys, of which the writer is an 
humble member, with the heretofore unknown descendants of the 
man of Udorf. To believe otherwise is to violate all the inferences 
that naturally flow from the records and traditions presented.

EORGE FREY was born Aug. 13, 1751, either in the stone 
house, or in a more humble building occupied by Gott- 
fried before he had acquired title to the land. His early 
life was of course that of a farmer's son, in a time when 
farming was much more laborious than it is now ; but later he, like 
his brother Godfrey, learned a trade, George making saddlery his 
choice, as is evidenced by his designation in the deed to him of the 
lot on George street. 

His War Record. 

Having arrived at the conclusion that there was but one George 
Frey in York during the period from 1751 to 1800, of adult age, 
it follows that anything relating to a man of that name from that 
place concerns the subject of this section. As this era covers the 
time of the War of the Revolution, the question naturally arose 
whether this ancestor was one of the brave men who won independ- 
ence for the new Continent. 

The proper place to go for information on this subject seemed 
to be the United States authorities at Washington, so an inquiry on 
this subject was duly made to the War Department. Tn due course 
of time came the reply that the name of George Frey did not appear 
on their records; but admitted that the records of that time were 
very incomplete, and advised search of the Pennsylvania records for 
further information. 

From the Pennsylvania Archives we make the following ex- 
tracts : 

George Frey in list of soldiers "who received pay" in the Revo- 
lution ; 5 Series, Vol. 4. 



124 GEORGE PREY. 

George Prey in Capt. John Ehrman's district as liable to 
military duty ; 6 Series, Vol. 2. 

George Prey in David Jamison's militia Regt. ; 6 Series, Vol. 2. 

George Prey in Capt. Wm. Bailey's company, June 14, 1776; 
6 Series, Vol. 2. 

George Prey was in Wm. Lindsay's company of militia from 
Dec. 8, 1 78 1, to Peb. 7, 1782. 

The name of George Prey appears as a member of Col. Henry 
Haller's Regiment, stationed at Newtown, Bucks County, Pa., in 
Jan., 1777; but the writer is unable to say whether it was this George 
or whether Col. Haller was a York County man. 

In the Spangler Pamilies, we find in the list of the men in Capt. 

Wm. Bailey's company, on June 14, 1776, these three names in 

immediate succession : 

George Prey. 
Gottlieb Siegle. 
Prederick Siegle. 

Quite naturally, George and his brothers-in-law appear grouped 
like that. 

Capt. Bailey's company, according to the Moravian Church 
records, existed in 1775, 1776 and lyyy^. It became a part of the 
five battalions from York County that marched to Eastern New 
Jersey in 1776 to form the Plying Camp. On their arrival in New 
Jersey 400 of these men were taken to form two battalions, and the 
remainder returned home*. Subsequently 500 more York County 
men were added to the Camp. Just how long this Plying Camp 
was in service the writer is unable to say. They went as far as 
Elizabeth, N. J. 

This Plying Camp, formed at the request of Gen. Washington, 
was to consist of 10,000 men, and was to be stationed in the Jerseys 
as a central force, ready to act in any direction, as circumstances 
might require'. It was under the command of Gen. Mercer, and

HIS Lll'I-: AND OFA 111 125 

troops from its ranks were engaged in the battle of Long Island, 
and the minor operations around New York and in the retreat 
through New Jersey. 

Whether George Frey and his comrades were members of the 
two battalions that remained with the Camp seems incapable of 
actual demonstration ; but from the traditions about the soldier 
uncle and his heroic experiences related to and by the descendants 
of 1 1 Godfrey Frey, it is more than probable that the former saw 
actual service of a most severe kind, and may have seen the great 
General himself; this is undoubtedly so if he was a member of Col. 
Swope's battalion, which suffered greatly in the battle of Long 
Island. By Act of Congress the so-called militia were put on 
the same footing as the regulars, and men who enlisted and 
were willing to go and actually did go to the front, ready to do their 
full duty, are not to be lightly deprived of the honor due them as 
soldiers of the Revolution, even if not engaged in any great battle. 
Pretensions as to experiences that never occurred could readily have 
been discovered at that time, and the probabilities are all on the side 
of George Frey having served his country in its hour of need to the 
best of his ability and opportunity. 

The term of enlistment for the Flying Camp expired in De- 
cember, 1776. In April, 1778, we find George Frey was a member 
of Col. David Jamison's militia regiment*. As Conrad Frey, a 
member of this same regiment, was a pensioner as late as 1804. it 
could hardly be denied that he was a soldier of the Revolution, and 
if he, why not the other members of the same regiment. It is not 
known just where this regiment was engaged. 

Perhaps it was the desire to be free to heed the call to arms 
that led George to sell his property in April, 1776, and then, when 
the urgency was great in June, of that same year, he was ready to 
go to the defence of his country without any anxiety as to the 
possessions he would otherwise have been compelled to leave in the 
charge of a young wife. 

^Spangler Families, 426. 



126 GEORGE FREY. 

As A Civilian. 

No record of George Frey's marriage has been found; but as 
his first child was born before Sept. 28, 1773, it would seem that 
soon after reaching his majority he was united to the oldest daugh- 
ter of Gottlieb Ziegle, whose land adjoined that of Gottfried Frey,- 
the two families growing up together until such time as Ziegle 
moved into the property on the Square in the growing village. 

Whether Gottlieb Ziegle opened his tavern on the southeast 
corner of George street and Centre Square before his daughter was 
married to George Frey cannot now be ascertained; but it is one of 
the coincidences of time that today two of Magdalena Ziegle's great- 
great-grandsons occupy offices in the building erected on the spot 
where her father's tavern stood. On another page are given illus- 
trations of the old Ziegle inn and the present modern office building 
occupying the same site. 

The George street property was purchased by George Frey 
Sept. 15, 1773^, and was doubtless the home of the young couple 
until its sale in 1776. After his return from the war it would seem 
as if he went into the tavern business, since in 1783, '85 and '87 
he is described as an innkeeper.. Possibly he kept the old Ziegle 
tavern, at the corner of George street and the Square, and which 
belonged to his brother-in-law, Gottlieb Ziegle, after 1779, the 
time of the death of the first Gottlieb. In his father-in-law's will 
George is devised the house in which he was then (1779) living, 
on paying the other heirs their share, but in 1805 this property, now 
13-15 South George street, was owned by John Fahs, Sr. Just how 
George parted with it could not be ascertained, as no deed from him 
appears on record. 

If we may draw any inferences from the considerations re- 
ceived for the different properties, George seems to have been 
retrograding financially, notwithstanding his fifty acres from his 
father's estate and the fact that his wife was heir to one-fourth of 



SDeed Book G 176. 



HIS LIFE AND DEATH 127 

Gottlieb Ziegle's estate; and when, in 1797. lie and his wife sold 
their interest in .1 stone house on George street, he probably parted 
with the last of his real estate, as there is no record of any other 
sales, nor was there any real estate left to be disposed of throu^'h 
proceedings in the courts at the time of his death. 

1674 Emanuel Frey, a grandson of George, in a little sketch 
left of 167 Samuel Frey, speaks of the latter having been born in 
very humble circumstances, being compelled to assist in the support 
of his mother at an early age; indicating inability on the part of 
George to provide for his own. In fact, the latter days of the 
soldier seem to have been spent under clouds of adversity. 

This same sketch seems to indicate that the family lived in a 
very humble home in Freystown. It is just possible that this prop- 
erty, the last of George's real estate, was sold by the heirs after his 
death, and that that is why guardians were appointed for the 
younger children. 

There is no record of his death or place of burial. As the last 
child was born in 1792, and guardians were appointed for Samuel 
and George on March 26, 1806. his death must have occurred be- 
tween these two dates^. Just why the guardians were appointed, if 
there was no estate to inherit, is not so evident, unless it was for 
the purpose of putting the younger children at a trade, for in those 
days the fatherless child had to have a guardian to act for him in 
the indenture of apprenticeship. 

How long his widow survived George is also unknown', (but 
she was not living in 18 17. at the time of the Ziegle partition pro- 
ceedings) and the place of her burial has not been found. Probably 
the old Lutheran burying ground, now occupied by the City Market, 
contains what yet remains of the dust of George Frey and Mary 
Magdalena Ziegle. Peace to their ashes.

128 GEORGE FREY. 

His Children. 

The children of George and Magdalena, as given by the records 
of Zion Reformed Church, were : 

George, baptized Sept. 28, 1773. 

Catharine, born Jan. 3, 1775. 

Mary Magdalen, born Sept. 20, 1776. 

George, born Nov. 22, 1778. 

Elizabeth, born Feb. 23, 1782. 

Jacob, born Oct. 22, 1784. ; . 

Daniel, born Jan. 11, 1786. 

And in the records of Christ Lutheran Church ; 
Samuel, born Dec. 14, 1790. 

From the court record previously referred to, it is evident that 
there was still another child : 

Frederick, born some time after 1792, since he was 
under 14 in 1806. 

From these baptisms it would seem that the earlier children 
were baptized in the church of the father and grandfather, while 
Samuel, born after the death of the grandfather and possibly that 
of the grandmother also, was baptized in the faith of his mother, 
before her marriage. The influence of the mother is manifest in 
the fact that all the children, so far as could be ascertained, grew 
up in membership with the Lutheran church. 

The discovery of a son of George, antedating the birth of 
Catharine, was not made until after much of the copy of this 
section, including the numbering of his descendants, had been pre- 
pared for the printer. As this child doubtless died before 1778, 
since the name George would not have been given to two living 
sons at the same time, he is not considered further in this work, and 
Catharine appears as the oldest child of 16. It is her story that is 
taken up in the next chapter of this genealogical treatise.

\y7> OW this, the oldest child of George Frey. was discovered. 
^^M •^"*^' '^*-^^^ ^^^^ descendants were identified, is a story of 
patient research on the part of the writer, made all the 
more diflicull l)y a stupid blunder. With no knowledge of 
the existence of any sisters of his grandfather, with no survivor of a 
preceding generation to question on the subject, and with the 
assertions of older cousins that they had never heard of such rela- 
tives, there seemed no way of proving their existence, to say 
nothing of tracing their descendants. 

There were two reasons, however, that led him to believe he 
had possessed great-aunts. First, the strong probability that in 
the days of large families, where there were five sons there would 
surely be some daughters; and second, the statement of several of 
'the older Freys that they were related to the Metzels and the 
Kolbs, one of them going so far as to specify the late proprietor of 
one of York's oldest hotels as in the "freundschaft." but admitting 
utter ignorance as to how that kinship was brought about. 

The obvious thing to do was to tackle the problem from the 
other side, and so the daughters of Thomas Metzel were called 
upon. "Oh, yes; of course we are related!" ''But how?" Ah, 
there was the rub! Jacob Frey (165) was recalled as "Uncle 
Jacob," and his wife as "Aunt Kitty,'' but the value of this state- 
ment was qualified by the admission that "everybody called her 
Aunt Kitty." The Kolb relation hinged on the ISIetzels, since 
Eliza Kolb was Eliza Metzel before the nuptial knot was tied. 
There was no recollection on the part of any living jMetzel of the 
name of either of the parents of Thomas Metzel. 



I30 GEORGE FREY. 

A visit to the widow of George Metzel, a nephew of Thomas, 
disclosed one new fact; the location of the house where dwelt 
"Grandmother Metzel" and her daughter. The house, a one-story 
log structure, of course has disappeared before the march of 
improvement; but the site is now know as 136 East Market street. 

The relation spoken of seemed to the writer to have neces- 
sarily been brought about by the marriage of an ancestor of 
Thomas Metzel to a daughter of the Freys, by the marriage of a 
sister of Thomas to a son of the Freys, or by his own marriage to 
a Frey. The latter was at once negatived by his daughters. 
Besides, such a marriage would have eliminated the relation with 
the Kolbs, who descended from a sister of Thomas. A marriage 
between one of George's sons and a sister of Thomas Metzel 
would only have produced a kinship between that particular son 
and the children of Thomas, yet descendants of four out of five 
sons of George asserted consanguinity with the Metzels. Evidently 
a Metzel young man had married a Frey girl. The only Frey girl 
of that period, that the writer had any knowledge of, was Elizabeth, 
for whose marriage portion Gottfried had provided in his will.^ 
A marriage between her and Thomas' father would have made 
Jacob Frey and Thomas Metzel first cousins, and Thomas' daugh- 
ters and Alex. J. Frey (1654) second cousins,* which is the rela- 
tion the Metzel girls thought existed between them. This idea 
Avas further born out by the fact that the name Elizabeth was 
practically that of Mrs. Kolb and her daughter. 

The next place to visit was the office of the Register of Wills, 
where a search was made for any of the name of Metzel. First 
came the record of the grant of letters of administration on the 
estate of George Valentine Metzel, on Oct. 14, 1803, to Catharine 
Metzel and Frederick Bonge.^ This was a disappointment, as no 
Frey girl by that name was known. The filing of the personal 
account ended the record of that estate, with not a whisper of any 

'Ante, page 16. sChildren of the same grandparent.

CATHARINE FRP:Y. 131 

children. No other record of the death of George Valentine 
Metzel could be found, and there is no tombstone that marks his 
grave. 

Thirty-six years later, on February 18, 1839, letters were 
granted on the estate of George Valentine Metzel to Thomas and 
Charles Metzel, and the same properly advertised. Now the scent 
is hot. Across the corridor to the office of the Clerk of the 
Orphans' Court, and soon there is seen the record of the the 
proceedings to sell the decedent's real estate.* Alack and alas! the 
unsympathetic page sets forth that "said George Valentine 
Metzel died intestate, leaving to survive him a widow, since 
deceased," giving no name. Here was a reference to the woman 
who was possibly the connecting link between the Frays and the 
Metzels, and yet not even her name appears on the record. 

But it gave the names of Thomas' father, brothers and sisters. 
Surely some one living 80 years ago might have heard Mrs. 
Metzel's baptismal name, although it is easy to see how a man may 
be spoken of as George Metzel, while his wife is only known as 
Mrs. George Metzel. So there began a search among the oldest 
inhabitants, even to writing to one who had moved out of the city. 
Vain effort! Several remembered Mrs. Kolb and her mother, but 
no one knew anything of George Valentine Metzel, or his wife's 
christian name. Once more were his grandchildren appealed to, 
and then the statement was made that their grandparents were 
buried in the yard adjoining Christ Lutheran church. Thither 
hastened the scribe, to find that the chapel covered the spot where 
their bodies are supposed to lie. and though a visit to the cellar 
showed a few old monuments, there was no solution as to the 
name or date of birth of George V. Metzel's wife. 

In the files of the York Gazette for 1839 was found the 
following entry : 

DIED. — On February 15,1839, Catharine Metzel, widow, aged about 65 
years. 



-JO. C. Docket T 144. 



132 GEORGE FREY. 

Was she the widow of the George Metzel whose estate was 
administered upon in 1803, or the George Metzel of 1839? What 
was her maiden name? 

A new compHcation arose from a story told by the daughters 
of Thomas Metzel, that after the death of their father's first wife, 
about 1830, his mother and sister kept house for him. Asked 
what George V. Metzel did while his wife and daughter were 
keeping house for another, even though that other was his son, 
they were at a loss to explain, 

A wise genealogist will not confine himself to but one problem 
at a time; if he does, his task will never be finished. While looking 
for daughters of George, or a husband for Elizabeth, the writer 
ever had in view the question of the descendants of the other 
children of Gottfried. Adam had by this time been identified, and 
his children were being traced; but how about Godfrey, Samuel 
and Henry ? Then was recalled the statement of a deceased uncle,^ 
that Samuel Frey, son of George, had "inherited money from an 
uncle." To inherit from an uncle, means that said uncle died after 
one's parent, and childless. If this proved to be an uncle on the 
father's side, it would obviate searching for any descendants of 
that son of Gottfried. An entry was found of the appointment of 
guardians for minor children of George Frey;^ but no intimation 
as to any inheritance from any estate. Judging from the state- 
ments of George's financial condition, contained in the paper 
already referred to, it is more than likely that these guardians were 
chosen for the purpose of apprenticing the boys to some trade. 
Baffled in the search for any inheritance from the Frey side, the 
mother's side was taken up, but no relative of hers died till long 
after the date of the appointment of guardians. Still in a half- 
hearted way the quest was continued, and then, in 181 6, was found 
the death of Gottlieb Ziegle, the second of that name. Following 
up the record, there was found the entry that the administrator's 
account had been presented, and "as it appeared to the Court that 
nearly all the money had been paid to the heirs," the account was 

£Infra, Subject 167. 60. C. Docket 1 230. 



CATHARINE FREY. 133 

approved. At once reference was sought to the accounts, three of 
which were filed at long intervals, but none of them were found! 
It was like a douche of ice water, to be so near, probably, to the 
names of Magdalena Ziegle's children, and then have the door 
slammed in one's face! 

But with the reaction came determination for a more thorough 
search. This was rewarded by the discovery of the petition for the 
sale of Gottlieb's real estate,' and this gave the names of his 
brothers and sisters and children of deceased brothers and sisters, 
and among the latter were the children of Alagdalena Ziegle, 
George, Jacob, Daniel, Samuel and Frederick Frey, and Catharine 
Aletzel, Mary Grant and Elizabeth Weigel. Subsequent instru- 
ments described Catharine as Catharine Metzel, widow.* 

Here was the Frey girl who had married a Metzel; but which 
Metzel? As she was described as a "widow" as early as 1820, she 
was doubtless the Catharine who administered on George V. 
Metzel's estate in 1803; but who were her children? Who was 
the wife of the Metzel of 1839? How were the two George V.'s 
related to each other? Surely not brothers, since the names were 
identical. Neither were they father and son, as no daughter of 
George Frey could have been grandmother to Thomas Metzel. 
who was born in 1797. 

It seemed inexplicable that while several of the older people 
interviewed remembered Thomas Metzel's mother, no one recalled 
anything of the father ; yet, according to the petition for an inquest, 
filed within two months after the grant of letters in 1839, the 
widow was "since deceased." 

For weeks and weeks this Metzel problem filled the writer's 
thoughts by day and his dreams by night. It made him feel that 
this genealogy business was not as easy as it looked, and instead of 
being simply a case of asking other people for information, it was 
a matter of digging relentlessly for it yourself. It looked as if the 
Frey book was going to be a miserable failure, more remarkable for 
what it omitted than for what it contained. 



70. C. Docket M 91. ^Deed Book 3L, 124. 



134 GEORGE FREY. 

And then, one day, like a flash out of a clear sky, came the 
key to the riddle. There were not two George V. Metsels, hut two 
administrations of the one estate! 

Additional investigation revealed the purchase by George 
Valentine Metzel, at Sheriff's sale in 1803^ of the very tract on 
which Eliza Metzel said her husband's grandmother lived in the 
'30s, and which was sold by George's administrators in 1839. It 
also showed the choice of Jacob Frey, brother of Catharine, as 
trustee and representative of the heirs of George V. Metzel to 
receive from John Coates, as representative of the Penns, a quit 
claim deed for this same tract. Lot No. 12, on payment of some 
rents which that astute gentleman alleged were yet due the former 
Proprietaries.^" 

It is evident that at George Valentine Metzel's death in 1803, 
the widow and Frederick Bonge sold the personal property to pay 
the debts and the funeral expenses — the account showed a balance 
due the administrators^' — and then, with five orphan children in 
her charge, the oldest not over nine years, Catharine bravely faced 
the world, with nothing between herself and want save her two 
hands, but with a roof over her head. For thirty-six years she 
struggled along, the little money she received from the Ziegle 
estate about sufficing for Coates' exactions, and then, when she 
died on Feb. 15, 1839, the second set of letters of administration 
on George Valentine Metzel's estate was taken out by two of his 
sons. ^ 

This hypothesis solves all the members of the hitherto 
puzzling equation. It proves Jacob Frey to be indeed an uncle, 
not to Thomas' children, but to Thomas himself, and the latter's 
children are related to all the descendants of George Frey; it 
justifies the appointment of Jacob as trustee for the fatherless 
children of Catharine; it explains why there was no father in the 
way "when Thomas Metzel's mother kept house for him; and it is

no longer strange that people might remember the grandmother of 
1839 and yet have no knowledge of the grandfather who died in 
1803. 

^ Now-a-days the Register's office shows time of death as well 
as grant of letters; and when a second set are issued the words 
de bonis non — "of the goods not" administered upon — are used. 
The absence of these things in the earlier period is the writer's 
only excuse for a blunder which destroyed his peace of mind for 
weeks, and which threatened, at one time, to cause the omission of a 
large and interesting family from these records, 

Catharine Frey was born Jan. 3, 1775, according to the Bible 
heretofore referred to^^, and the date in the Zion Reformed church, 
Jan. 19, 1775, is probably that of baptism. The date of her mar- 
riage to George Valentine Metzel, a tailor, can only be approxi- 
mated by reference to the birth of her first child, in 1794. Her 
married life was but a few vears, and she remained devoted to her 
children and faithful to her first love, living in the home George 
provided for her, except for the few^ years she kept house for her 
son Thomas, down to the day of her death, Feb. 15, 1839. Her 
children all reached maturity, and a prolific list of descendants 
follows : 

161 1 ANNA MARY METZEL, popularly known as 
"Polly" was probably born in 1794: d. before Apr. 3. 1839, 
as she was not living at the time of the partition of her father's 
estate. She married Thomas Rothrock, a tanner living on South 
Beaver street, York, who was born June 7. 1794. The date of his 
death is unknown, but as there were no children born after 1829. 
and this was not the era of race suicide, it is plausible that Thomas 
died in 1830. His paternal ancestors were: 

Philip Rothrock. grandfather of Thomas Rothrock. came to this 
country from Gunnstadt in Pfaltz, in the Palatinate, in 1732. mar- 
ried Catharine Kuntz. b. 1720, and settled in Manchester township, 
near York. He sems to have been a printer by trade, as he printed 
the Continental money while Congress met in York. He was one 

-'jpage 120. 



136 GEORGE FREY. 

of the Commissioners of York County in 1781^'^ He died Feb. 28, 
1803. leaving to survive him the following children: Jacob, John, 
Philip, Peter, George, Valentine, Benjamin. Joseph, Frederick, 
Catharine (married Bentz) and Anna Maria (married Meisenkop 
and afterwards Berry). In his will he mentions 260 acres of land 
which he owned in Rowan County, N. C, and it appears that some 
of his descendants are now living in that State. 

His son Benjamin, against the remonstrances of his father 
and brothers, enlisted m Morgan's Virginia Rifle Company, as it 
was passing through York on its way to Boston. That he was never 
heard of afterwards is evidenced by the fact that Philip's will, 
twenty years later, provided for the payment of Benjamin's share 
if he should be heard of in a certain time. 

John Rothrock, one of the sons of Philip, b. Feb. 18, 1744, was 
2nd Lieutenant in the 5th Co., (Capt. Emanuel Herman), of the 
2nd Battalion of York County Militia in the Revolution^^ He was 
a saddler by occupation, and was first married to Dorothy Gump, 
by whom he had two children, John and Daniel. After her death 
he married Charity Worley, daughter of -Francis Worley, the sur- 
veyor of Springetsbury Manor. The result of this union was nine 
children: Elizabeth (married Updegraph). Mary (married Fahs), 
George, James, Charity (married Test, one of whose grandsons 
was John W. Buckingham). Jacob, Henry, Thomas and Susan 
(married McCurdy). John lived on the northeast corner of Market 
and Penn streets and died Aug. 28, 1805. George and Henry 
Rothrock settled in Bellefonte. 

The children of John W. Buckingham paid a rare tribute to 
the memory of Philip and John Rothrock, their great-great-great- 
grandfather and great-great-grandfather respectively, when they 
had their bodies exhumed from the old Moravian Cemetery at the 
time it was abandoned, a few years ago, and reinterred in Prospect 
Hill Cemetery. It is an example that might well be followed by 
many others, whose ancestors' graves are neglected and eventually 
lost.

(y^\\ EFERENCE to the preceding chapter reveals the finding of 
^\\ the children of i6 George Frey, including the daughter 
/^N^ to which this short chapter is devoted. Unlike Cath- 
arine's descendants, the name of Grant as a connection 
of the Freys was unheard of by the writer and unknown by any of 
his contemporary relatives. Nor were there any Grant families in 
the city or vicinity of whom inquiries could be made. For months 
this name rested upon his thoughts like a nightmare, and every one 
whom he thought might prove a source of information was asked 
about such a family. Remembering that this Grant woman would 
have been a first cousin to the children of Gottlieb Ziegle's brothers 
and sisters, and an aunt to the children of Catharine Metzel and 
the children of George, Samuel, Daniel and Frederick Frey, inquiry 
was made of descendants of the Freys, Ziegles, Metzeis and Heck- 
erts (Dorothy Ziegle having married a Heckert) for information 
on the subject, but none was forthcoming. The assessment book 
for York Borough for 1799 gave the name John Grant; but in 1801 
it has disappeared therefrom. The records of Christ Lutheran 
church set forth the baptism of Charles Grant, son of John and 
Mary Magdalena Grant, born Feb. 15, 1799; but no other 
Grants appear thereon. Reference to the deeds set forth in 161 
show that John and Mary Grant were both alive in 1830, and as 
the acknowledgements were all taken in York, presumably they 
lived in or near that town at that time. It looked like a failure, and 
then one day came the thought that there might be a later release 
or document from the Ziegle heirs to Lanius, the man who had acted 
as their attorney in the former transaction. No index was found 



MARY MAGDALEKA. 155 

under the Zs ; but under the Ls was an index from Charles Grant 
to Christopher Lanius. aiul reference to tlie record showed the exe- 
cution of a power of attorney from Mary Grant, of Li^jonier, West- 
moreland County, to Charles Grant, of Abbottstown, Adams 
County, authorizing him to receii)t to Christopiier Lanius for the 
balance of her portion of the Ziegle estate^. This release was exe- 
cuted in 1847, ^"<^ shows how long was the litigation over the 
distribution of that estate. But, more than that, it gave the residence 
of at least one child of Mary Magdalena Frey. Elated at this 
information, the writer met his brother-in-law in front of the Court 
House, and ever busy thrusting his affairs on others, knowing that 
said brother-in-law lived but five miles from Abbottstown, asked 
him if he had ever heard of any Grants at that place. "Oh. yes;" 
was the reply; followed by a promise to look the matter up and 
write. It never rains but pours : when the writer told this piece of 
good luck to the partner of his joys and sorrows he was astounded 
to hear her say: "Oh, yes; I knew a Hetty Grant!'' 

These two sources resulted in the discovery of the family of 
Charles Grant, above-mentioned ; but no others of Mary's children 
could be traced. Henrietta Zortman, the Hetty Grant mentioned, 
and the onlv child of Charles Grant then livinsf, asked about 
brothers or sisters, or parents, of her father, said "the family went 
away out West, as far as Pittsburg;" and she could tell nothing 
about them. Communication with a gentleman in Ligonier, whose 
daughter lives in York, revealed the existence of a Rosa Grant, but 
letters to her brought forth the statement that her father had always 
said he had no relatives in this country. 

In connection with the search for the Grants occurred an inci- 
dent which shows how necessary it is for one engaged in work of 
this kind, (although it is quite probable that this same doctrine 
applies to any work that is ^\orth while) to neglect no oppor- 
tunity to get information from any source, no matter how un- 
promising it seems. While speaking with the daughter of 16 143

Charles Metzel (16 143 1 Henrietta), he asked her the usual 
questions, including the one "Your mother's maiden name?'' "My 
right mother or my stepmother?" "Did your stepmother have any 
children from your father?" "No." "Then I only want your right 
mother's name." And in this way was shut off the information that 
the second wife of 16143 Charles Metzel was 16217 Lydia Ann 
Grant, and for weeks afterwards the writer was worrying every- 
body about Grants, after having stupidly closed his ears to the 
information practically volunteered to him. If it had not been for 
the discovery of the release to Lanius the Grant connection would 
not have been obtained, although it was right at hand. 

It seems highly improbable that in the twenty-odd years of 
married life of John and Mary Grant there was but one child born. 
Race suicide had not become fashionable at that age, and the women 
of that time were not depending on Greeks, Italians and other 
foreigners for the future inhabitants of America; but the v/riter 
has not been able to find any more Grants, and does not feel justified, 
considering the uncertainty of life, to further delay publication of 
this work in order to discover them, with the probabilities of ulti- 
mate failure at any rate. He regrets this exceedingly; but his 
regrets are tempered by the knowledge that all genealogists meet 
with similar experiences. 

Over two years after the above-mentioned discovery of the 

existence of a Mary Prey, and the name of one of her children, a 

further search in the original records of Zion Reformed Church 

showed the following : 

On October 6, ^yj^, was baptized a child of George Frey and 
his wife, Maria Magdalena, b. Sept. 20, named Maria Magdalena. 
Witnesses, Gottlieb Ziegle and wife Barbara. 

Omitting the short-lived George for the reasons already given, 
to Mary Magdalena is assigned the place of the second of 16 
George's children. Nothing further is known of her life, mar- 
riage or death, save that she was yet alive in 1847. Of her husband 
nothing is known but his name. This chapter closes with the record 
of the descendants of her son, Charles Grant.

EMORY often brings to the writer recollections of 
one of his earliest schoolmates, a boy about eighteen 
months older, named William B. Frey, a sturdy lad 
who grew up into a promising young man, married 
'and died in middle life, leaving one child to sundve him. Through 
his acquaintance with the son the writer learned to know the father, 
and when this history was conceived, he turned to him for informa- 
tion concerning his line of Freys. Capt. William Frey, as he is 
generally known, received the writer's request in the most cordial 
spirit, stating that he had long wished some one would take up the 
•matter, and cheerfully agreed to do all in his power to further the 
■project. 

From him came the first information of the names of some 
'brothers of 167 Samuel Frey, of whom the writer had not heard, 
and confirmation of the relation of 165 Jacob Frey; but the Captain 
had no knowledge of any sisters of 167. He furnished the names 
of the children of 163, and instructions as to where their descend- 
ants might be found, and m many ways was exceedingly helpful in 
the preparation of this work. The sketch of the Gottfried Frey 
house, in which William Frey lived for a number of years with his 
grandfather, 163, furnished the basis for the illustration found on 
a preceding page, although the Captain was unav.-are of the fact 
that Gottfried ever lived in the house, or even that there ever was 
such a man. 

George Frey, the oldest son of 16 George Frey, to reach ma- 
turity, was born, either in the settlement of Freystown or in the

village of York^ Nov. 22, 1778, as is shown by the Zion Reformed 
church records. He was a laborer by occupation, living nearly all 
his lite in Freystown. In the war of 1812 his patriotic soul was 
aroused; he enlisted and started for the front; but peace was de- 
clared before he became actively engaged. For his services his 
widow subsec|uently received a pension from a grateful government. 
For a number of years he lived in the "stone mansion" of Gott- 
fried's, which then belonged to the Hambly estate; but wliether he 
was aware of the family connection with the old house we are 
unable to say. He died suddenly about 1849. His wife was Anna 
Mary Sleeger, who died about 1878, in her ninety-second year. 

The influence of propinquity in marriages is strikingly illus- 
trated in George Frey's family, as three of his children, George. 
Anna Mary and Leah, married three children of John Spangler, 
living in the same township, w^ho was a great-great-grandson of 
Caspar Spangler, the emigrant, whose descendants are given in the 
"Spangler Families," and whose ancestors are traced back to the 
year 1150. Elsewhere is given an illustration of the Spangler house 
in Weiler, Baden.

(^14/ NSATISFACTORY, indeed, is the record that must here 
be given concerning tlie third daughter of George and 
Mary Magdalena Frey. The name W'eigel or Weigle is 
rather common in York County, and when the writer first 
saw that the husband of EHzabeth was named ]\IichaeI. he recalled 
a John ■\1. Weigel in York, and at once sought him. believing that 
the M. might stand for Michael, and a family name be thus repro- 
duced. But he soon learned that such was not the case; and this 
was only the first of a long series of di^-aj/pointments. [.etters were 
written, church records and court house searched, cemeteries visited 
and old residents called upon: but all in vain. No one had e\'er 
heard of a Michael Weigel. 

There was one moment when it seemed that the secret might 
be revealed. A member of another branch of W'eigels, who had 
been spoken to about the matter, came to the writer one day and 
said that among some old papers he had found the name of Michael 
Weigel; but a subsequent examination cast a grave doubt as to 
whether what had been supposed to be Michael actually was that 
name, and at any rate in the connection in which it was used there 
was nothing to indicate anything about the residence or family of 
the man. 

As previously stated^ the petition for inquest m the Ziegle 
matter was the first source of knowledge of the existence of Eliza- 
beth Frey and the name of her husband. Two years later her name 
was discovered in the original Zion Reformed Church records, which 
gives the date of her birth, Feb. 2}^, 1782, just a few months before 
the death of her grandfather Frey. The only record of her mar- 

iPaga 133. 



i8o GEORGE FREY. 

riage is the statement in the Ziegle proceedings that Michael Wei gel 
was her husband. Of Michael all that is known is that he appears 
on the assessment books of Dover township in 1805, 1810, 1817 and 
18 18, his occupation being a weaver, and his taxable property a 
small house and lot and one cow. 

The last of the Lanius deeds shows that Elizabeth and Michael 
were both living in 1830, and that is the last data that could be found 
al)Out them. At that time Elizabeth was only 48 years old, and it 
was hoped that she had lived long enough after that date to bring 
her within the recollection of some one who might yet be living; 
but the hope was in vain. 

The Zion Reformed Church records show the baptism of two 
children of Elizabeth and Michael Weigel, 

Elizabeth Weigel, b. Dec. 14, 1804. 

Susan W^eigel, b. Apr. 9, 1806. 

Doubtless, when these children reached maturity, they married, 
and thus, with the change of name, their identity as Weigels has 
been lost. 

At the graveyard connected with Ouickel's Church there is a 
tombstone erected to the memory of 

George Weigel, b. Aug. 4, 1803; d. Sept. 27, 1842. 

This man might ha^-e been a son of Elizabeth's, the name 
George lending color to this view. 

1 632 1 William Frey has a dim recollection that when he was 
but a lad, there came to his father's house a young man named 
Weige, from the neighborhood of the Conewago, who was said to 
be a cousin of some sort ; but was uncertain about the first name. 

This concludes all that can be said about this youngest daughter 
of George Frey. It is exceedingly disappointing, almost humiliat- 
ing; but, in the absence of any assurance that further delay might 
produce fuller results, the writer is compelled to close this chapter 
and be content that he was able to preserve her name in this history 
of her brothers' and sisters' descendants, even although all trace of 
her own children is lost. 



165 S^acob Jfre^. 




'(^'%' HY the writer was told the name of this particular 
one of his great-uncles, instead of any one of the other 
three, is unknown ; but it is certain that it was the 
only one he had any knowledge of until after work 
on this book was begun. Possibly the older members of his father's 
family may have known of others, but to him Jacob was the con- 
necting link with the men of former days. 

When the work of discovering his ancestors and relatives was 
undertaken, this name was recalled and inquiries made of older 
relatives and also of descendants of Jacob Frey. Such facts as 
could be gleaned are rather meager, and it is to be regretted that 
not more can be said about a man who succeeded in rising above 
the humble circumstances by which he was surrounded. 

According to the records of Zion Reformed Church, "Jacob 
Frey, born Oct. 22, 1784, was baptized Nov. 14, 1784; parents, 
George Frey and Alary Magdalena." 

When Jacob was about 12 years old his father died, and the 
circumstances of the family were such that he was apprenticed as 
a tailor, which pursuit he followed for many years. By thrift and 
economy he acquired property not only in Freystown but also in 
York, and owned the frame buildings on the lot on the southwest 
corner of Market and Duke streets, his son David conductinsr a 
printing establishment in the building on the Market street front 
and Jacob, and his widow after him, living in a house on the rear 
end of the lot along Duke street. 

There was a Jacob Frey who went with York troops to Balti- 
more in the War of 1812; but it is impossible to say whether it was 
this Jacob or the one whose daughter 1651 married. 



1 82 georgp: frey. 

He was married Nov. 25, 1809, to Catharine Huber, b. Dec. 
17, 1788, and he died Dec. 3, 1854. His -widow survived him nearly 
20 years, dying July 9, 1874. Their descendants follow: 

165 1 JOHN FREY. The writer has been unable to learn 
any more of this oldest son of Jacob and Catharine Frey than the 
bare fact that there was such a person, and that he left York and was 
never heard of afterward. 

1652 BENJAMIN FREY, b. Mar. 28, 1813 ; d. Mar. 6, 1850. 
He lived on the east side of South Queen street, York. M. Anna 
Maria Frey, a daughter of a Jacob Frey who came to this country 
when comparatively young, as it is said that his wife was only thir- 
teen years old when they were married, just before starting for 
America. If there was any relation between the two Jacobs it must 
have been quite distant. Benjamin left no issue, and his widow 
afterward married Caleb Kepner and died, a widow a second time, 
in May, 1900.

Pennsylvanian in 1851, a weekly newspaper which flourished for 
over fifty years. In 1876 he admitted his son, David E., into part- 
nership, which continued for a year, when the latter retired on 
account of ill health. In 1879 V. K. Frey was given an interest, 
and when David A. retired in 1887 the son continued the business 
until the discontinuance in 1906. In 1854 David A. Frey married 
Mary Johnston King, a daughter of Henry King, who owned a 
large farm on both sides of the Codorus creek above Penn street. 
Mrs. Frey was. a descendant of Yost Harbaugh, a French Hugue- 
not who fled to Switzerland on account of religious persecution and 
emigrated to America, purchasing a tract near Kreutz creek. He 
was one of Gottfried Frey's fellow laborers in the erection of the 
first Reformed Church at York. Mrs. Frey was born Oct. 15, 1836,

TILL retaining his predilections for the Reformed Church, 

and his commanding influence in the family, George Frey 

had his sixth child baptized in that faith, and on the 

records of Zion Reformed Church is found the entry, 

Daniel Frey, son of George and Mary Magdalene Frey, born 

January ii, 1786. 

No other mention of him has been found in any court house 
records or church books, and the writer is unable to say when he was 
married, when he died or where he is buried. 

The first knowledge of him was obtained from 16735 Marcellus 
Frey, who spoke of him as a great-uncle, and knew that one of his 
daughters married a Wilhelm. and referred to some descendants 
then living in York. 16321 Frey also knew of a Daniel Frey. The 
inquest in the Ziegle estate is the only court record of Daniel Frey. 
A little additional information was obtained from Charles M. Wil- 
helm, a grand-son, 

Daniel was a lime burner by occupation, resided in York, and 
was married to Margaret Stengel. Their descendants follow :

167 Samuel f re^. 



y^ LINGING to the faith of her childhood through all the 
ill years of her married life up to this period, Mary Magda- 
^^-K lena Ziegle at last prevailed against her husband, whose 

* marital influence evidently waned with his declining cir- 
cumstances, and Samuel Frey, the seventh child of their union, was 
baptized by the Lutheran pastor of Christ Church, the record 
reading : 

Samuel, son of George and Magdalena Frey, b. Dec. 14, 1790. 

This is the man whose character and success, as related in a 
sketch written by one of his sons, made an impression on the mind 
of the writer that moved him to begin this work^, which has far 
outgrown its original intentions. With perhaps the most discour- 
aging influences and environments of any of George Frey's children, 
he reared the most numerous family, gave two of his children a 
college education and died in better financial circumstances than 
any of his brothers. This was due to untiring industry, practical 
economy and abstinence from convivial habits that prove the down- 
fall of so many careers that at the outset give the brightest of 
promises. Though tainted by inheritance of at least two genera- 
tions, and with family examples all around him, through the re- 
straining influence of a faithful yet determined wife he escaped the 
dangers of the cup and made for himself a reputation of which his 
descendants need not be ashamed. 

From the sketch already referred to and from some records, 
it is known that Samuel was born in the village of Freystown and 
that his father died as the boy was "just out of infancy." So low

GEORGE— SAMUEL. 193 

were the family finances that the mother eked ont a living by selling 
ginger cakes and bread, and in early life yo'.ing Samuel jjeddled 
his mother's wares through the streets of York. 

"When he had l)ut just entered his teens" his mother died, and 
the younger children were scattered among those who could give 
a home for their work. At first Samuel was placed with a man in 
Freystown who proposed to have him work at weaving in the winter 
and in a brickyard in summer ; but the death of the benevolent 
gentleman put an end to this transaction. Then an uncle attempted 
to teach him the trade of gunsmith ; to this Samuel did not take 
kindly. Then he was apprenticed for a term of five years to a shoe- 
maker. Possibly it was for tliis that a guardian was appointed^. 
Whether the young man by this time realized that he simply was 
compelled to learn some trade to make a living or whether he took 
more kindly to this occupation than the others is unknown; certain 
it is that he became an adept at the art, learning it so well that at 
the end of his apprenticeship he set up in business for himself, and 
soon had several employes working for him. Though he made other 
business ventures which were much more profitable, he continued in 
the shoemaking trade for over twenty-five years and taught it to 
at least one of his sons. 

But Samuel saw other things besides leather and pegs, and 
when he was but twenty years old he married Anna Kissinger, 
daughter of Philip Kissinger, and a lineal descendant of Christine 
von Sitler, the daughter of that German Baron whose mythical for- 
tune has lured contributions from many Pennsylvanians in a vain 
attempt to recover alleged millions. Anna w^as born May 3, 1790, 
and is the one grandparent whose kindly features the writer saw 
and can recall to this day. 

Samuel married with thirty dollars in his pocket. To provide 
a home for his bride he bought a lot of ground on which was erected 
a small log cabin; but this only provided room for his shoemaker 
shop. So he purchased an abandoned still house, and used the

timber therein in the erection of an adjoining building for a home. 
This humble habitation was situated at what is now 666-672 East 
Market street, and, with some additions and alterations, was his 
home up to a few years before his death. The work on this house 
was nearly all done after shop hours, and the extra toil and exposure 
resulting therefrom brought on a chronic rheumatism, from which 
he suffered all through life, and which bowed his spine almost to the 
extent of a deformity. As the additions, one-story high, all fronted 
on the street, he facetiously termed it a "three-story house along the 
ground." 

The final completion of a home started a train of thought in 
Samuel's mind which led to the purchase of several low priced tracts 
of land and the gradual erection thereon of cheap houses which 
were sold to people in poor circumstances on the installment plan. 
During his life time he built fifty such houses, and many a poor 
man acquired a home in this manner that otherwise would have had 
to pay rent all his life. 

He also reached out into the country and buying tracts of so- 
called barren lands he cut the timber and used it in the burning of 
lime and brick, to which business he turned his attention after he 
abandoned the shoemaker's calling. After the wood was cut oft 
much of the lime burned thereby was put on the land, and with its 
soil thus enriched a tidy profit was made on the sale of the originally 
barren tract. 

In those da3-s patriotism largely found expression in military 
ardor and ihe little York of that rime had more active militia com- 
panies than the populous city of today. Samuel Frey was for years, 
notwithstanding his physical afflictions, captain of one of these com- 
panies, and was generally known by that title. 

Samuel's family record gives several instances of intermarriage 
and the results of propinquity, in a little more varied degree than 
that of his cousin George.^ His second child, 1672 Cassandra, mar-

riefl Jacob Kaincr, aiul siibsecinently 1O77 married Sarah Kanicr. 
Jacob Ramer moved on a farm in West Manchester township, from 
which John Gallatin removed, and in the summer the Gallatins came 
to reap the grain soMn the previous fall, at which time 1677 Anna 
Mary Frey was visiting her sister. The acquaintance tliere made 
resulted in her marriage to Albert Grdlatin. Kitlier at llic wedding 
or soon thereafter 1677 Samuel Frey met Delia Gallatin, and three 
years later they were married. John Drayer went to Michael 
Boeckel's in Freystown to learn the tailoring trade, and he and young 
Boeckel married the remaining two of ]67's daughters. 

Samuel was esteemed by his neighbors to such an extent that 
he held seA'eral minor oi^ces, and in 185 1 was elected to the office 
of County Treasurer by the largest majority ever received up to 
that time by a candidate of his party; but on Dec. 5, 1851, before 
he could take possession of the ncwlv acquired office, he died, 
in a house standing on the site of the present No. 713 East Market 
street, now occupied by 163225, leaving to survive him his widow 
and ten children. There are produced herewitli illustrations of nine 
of these children, and, in the absence of any portrait of his own, his 
features must be imagined from a composite group of these descen- 
dants. 

His widow and a crippled son made their home with the oldest 
daughter to the day of their death, the widow dying Feb. 18, 1870, 
and the son (1674 Emanuel Frey) Nov. 7, 1871. Samuel's de- 
scendants, numbering more than any of his brothers and sisters or 
cousins, are given herewith :

Gallatin, b. Oct. 28, 1814. Farmer. In their early married life lived 



2o6 GEORGE FREY. 

on a farm belonging to Mrs. Gallacin's father at the edge of Freys- 
town, later on his farm in York twp., and which they purchased 
after Mr. Frey's death. Subsequently lived near Loganville, York 
Co., and later in York, where Mr. Gallatin engaged in the manu- 
facture of cigars for a number of years, but retired from all business 
years before his death on October 25, 1895. 

Some of the Gallatins have expressed the thought that they 
might be descendants of Albert Gallatin, the financier and statesman 
of the early days of the Republic, but this is impossible, because he 
was born in 1761, while John Gallatin, doubtless the grandfather of 
the husband of 1676, was the owner of land in Heidelberg township 
in 1787. His son John, who died about 1854, at Jefferson, aged at 
least 62 years, was the father of at least three sons and four daugh- 
ters, the oldest son, if not the oldest child, being Albert Gallatin, the 
young man who fell in love with "Polly" Frey the first time he 
saw her at her sister's house. The name Gallatin is said by a geneal- 
ogist in the Pennsylvania German Magazine, to be a corruption of 
the Swiss Gallaudet, a theory borne out by the fact that among the 
Germans of his neighborhood the original John was indiscriminately 
called Golliday and Galladin, subsequently anglicized into Gallatin. 
Possibly the children of 1676 and 1677, though not descendants of 
the famous Albert, are sprung from another branch of the common 
Gallaudet tree. 

Albert and Anna Mary were the ancestors of seventeen children, 
some of whom died unnamed. Such as were duly named and 
recorded in the family Bible, follow herewith :

OUNGEST known child of George Frev, since there is no 
record of the appointment of guardians for any other of his 
children, under the age of fourteen, Fiederick's very name 
was forgotten by the majority of his great-nephews until 
the discovery of it in the much-mentioned Ziegle proceedings. A 
number of the older relatives knew that there was such a great-uncle 
but thought the name was John, and from 16735 Marcellus Frey 
was obtained a complete list of Frederick's children. The family 
comprised four sons and four daughters, and four of these children 
soon drifted away from the home town. Two of these were known 
to have gone to Ohio; but in the absence of anything more specific 
in the way of address it seemed unlikely that anything more would 
be found out about them. How the information which is herein- 
after given concerning one of them was obtained is detailed under 
the proper subject. 

Frederick, from the fact that he was under fourteen on March 
26, 1806, must have been ijorn later than that date in 1792. As his 
father probably died in 1796^ he was born not later than 1797. 
He was married July, 1818, which is inferential evidence that he 
was born between 1792 and 1797 By occupation he was a brick 
mason, of considerable local reputation. He married Rebecca Kis- 
singer, a daughter of Philip Kissinger and a sister of his brother 
Samuel's wife. Fie died about 1S42. having spent all of his life in 
his native village of Freystown. now part of the city of York.

where he went into the hardware business. During the Civil War 
he enlisted and was Second Lieutenant of Co. F, 3rd Rgt., Ohio 
Volunteers. 

The tale of the finding of Charles' family reads like a story 
book. While the writer was engaged in looking up the descendants 
of II Godfrey Frey, he received a letter from 11423 Mrs. Charles 
R. Baird, in which, after the information about her own family as 
asked for, she says ; 

"Enclosed find a clipping. Are we related to this man?" 

The clipping was evidently cut out of a program or souvenir 
booklet of some sort, and was an advertisement of E. L. Frey, 
Hardware, but without any address. The writer at once answered 
Mrs. Baird, stating that there were some Freys in Ohio, presumably, 
for whom he had been seeking for some time, and asked her to get 
the address, if possible. Tliis was complied with by Mrs. Baird, 
and correspondence with J\Tr. Frey revealed the fact that he was the 
son of the Charles A. Frey who left York for Ohio before the war.

As sho\vin<4 liow inh^niKuion is often within our grasp, if we 
but knew where to look for it, Mr. E. L. Frey stated that his father 
was a member of a York lode^e of Odd Fellows down to the day of 
his death, so that if the writer had but asked the secretary of the 
Iodide the much soii^ht-for address could easily have Ijeen procured.

NLIKE the story of the identification of the two older 
sons of Gottfried, the difficulty in the case of this sixth 
son was not the question of deciding which of two men 
was a lineal descendant of Kaspar, but to establish be- 
yond cavil that the one Adam Frey who appears in York County 
records in the last third of the eighteenth century and the first 
third of the nineteenth was the son of the pioneer lad from Weiler. 

As previously stated^ the writer from boyhood was acquainted 
with 1957 Charles H. Fry, who was one of his earlier school teachers, 
and soon heard of a family tie between them, although how near 
he was never told. It is characteristic of the indifference existing 
among Americans as to their ancestry that no one seemed to know 
just how near or remote the connection was, and later on it seems 
that Charles doubted it entirely, as he was of the opinion that his 
father came from Berks county, secured a position with a Windsor 
township farmer, married his employer's daughter and founded that 
line of Freys or Frys, for both spellings have been used by this 
branch. 

The danger of trusting entirely to tradition is forcibly illus- 
trated in the experience of 1654 Alex. J. Frey, who, in a conversa- 
tion with Samuel F. Frey, a descendant of the Adams county line, 
said : "We both come from Berks county people," a statement 
wholly incorrect, so far as Alexander was concerned, as Tobias, 
though he may have been in Berks county a year or two in the period 
between 1727 and 1729, was not of the Henry Frey stock which 

iAnte, p. 10. 



2^8 ADAM FREY. 



figures largely in Berks and probably Chester and Lancaster county 
afifairs : while the Adams county line is most probably sprung from 
a Samuel Frey who settled there before 1770 and who seems to have 
been a younger brother of Gottfried's, born after Tobias' arrival in 
America^; or from John Peter, a nephew of Gottfried.* This idea 
doubtless had its origin in the minds of both Alexander and Charles 
by reading in Pennsylvania history of the settlement of Freys in 
this country before 1681, forgetting about the Freys who came 
after that time. 

The records of Zion Reformed church, at York, give the 
names of three children of Adam Frey, Henry, Regina and Daniel, 
in the period between 1786 and 1793. While there was a church at 
Freysville as early as 1771, it is possible that it was served by the 
York pastor, and the records he has left of his ministerial acts 
include those of the Windsor charge as well as of the York congre- 
gation, so there is no evidence from these records as to whether 
Adam lived in York or in Windsor township at the time of the birth 
of these children. 

One fact tending to locate Gottfried's Adam is contained in 
the deed executed on July 28, 1783^, by which he sold his patrimony 
to George Stake, in which he described himself as of York town- 
ship. In the deed^ executed in 1789 conveying to him a lot in Freys- 
town in trust for his son Henry, he is also described as of York 
township. In 1792 he is assessed with two houses in Freystown. 
As his name does not appear in the Windsor township assessment 
prior to 1795 it is a fair presumption that there was but the one 
Adam, and that he was Gottfried's son. 

However, to base a genealogical connection on but one "fact," 
and that fact a mere inference, is skating on very thin ice, and the 
writer is happy to be able to record several other circumstances tend- 
ing to strengthen the link binding the Windsor township line to the 
Weiler emigrant.

THE WINDSOR TOWNSHIP LINE. 239 

Jn the deed executed by Gottfried's Adam to Georpe Stake 
his wife is given as "Anna Mary." In the baptismal record of 
Henry' he is described as the son of Adam and Anna Maria, the 
Gemian form of Anna Mary. Here is the same Christian n?tme of 
the w ife. Is it probable that there could be two Adam l^'reys living 
in adjoining townships, having wives bearing the same Christian 
name ? 

Another corrolx)rative fact is that Adam Prey, the son of 
Gottfried, had a son named Henry, and that the Adam Frey of the 
Zion church records also had a son by that same name. But stronger 
still, the latter Henry, baptized Dec. 18, 1787. would doubtless be 
of age when the deed for the lot held in trust by Adam was executed 
by the former Henry on Dec. 13, 1808. in which he describes 
himself as "since arrived of full age^" Is it conceivable that there 
would be two men of the same name and born so nearly at the 
same time? 

So much for the identity of the son of Gottfried and the father 
of Henry. Now, what became of him ? 

In searching the court records there was found the will of 
Adam Frey, of Windsor township^, in wdiich he devised his prop- 
erty for life to his wife Anna Maria, and after her death to his 
children. Elizabeth, intermarried with John Hershner, and his sons, 
Henry, Daniel, John, Jacob and Adam. True, this omitted Kegina 
and named other children than those found in the church records, 
but it was easy to believe that Regina might have died and the others 
been baptized elsewhere. So the next step was to show the identity 
of this Adam with the son of Gottfried, and then to find his de- 
scendants. 

Inquiry was made of a resident of Windsor township as to the 
oldest Frev in that vicinity, and after some thought the name of 
Solomon Frey, of Red Lion, was given. A correspondence was 
opened and a visit paid. "You ask me the name of my grand- 

«Zlon Reformed Church. 8W111 Book T 41.

240 ADAM FREY. 

father," said Solomon; "but how should I know. I was young 
when he died. I remember of his coming to our house, but he was 
always spoken of as Grandfather Frey." "Well," said the historian, 
''there was a man named Adam Frey, who li^'ed in this neighbor- 
hood, and who in his will names his daughter Elizabeth Hershner, 
and his sons Henry, Daniel, John, Jacob and Adam." "Why," 
said Solomon, "that was my aunt, and those were my uncles and 
my father Adam. And now I feel sure that my grandfather's name 
was Adam." 

The name of the wife being the same, there were yet three 
points needed to establish the identity of Solomon Frey's grand- 
father with the Adam of the church records : the ages of Henry and 
Daniel, and the disappearance of Regina, of whom Solomon had 
never heard. He knew, however, that Henry had lived in Shrews- 
bury township, that Daniel's grave was in a private cemetery near 
Landis' Mill, in Springetsbury township, and that his grandfather 
and some of his children were buried in the old burying ground at 
Freysville. Daniel's grave, visited the next day, recorded his death 
and age, a calculation giving his birth on exactly the date furnished 
by the baptismal record. Later on, Henry's grave in the Lutheran 
church yard at Shrewsbury gave a similar agreement as to his birth. 

A visit to the Freysville cemetery proved disappointing in 
that no tablet, however modest, revealed the resting place of the 
remains of Adam, and hence a comparison of his birth with the 
church record of the birth of Gottfried's Adam could not be made. 
Though Adam carefully erected slate tablets to mark the graves of 
such of his children who died in infancy, the children who sur- 
vived him. neglected this mark of filial duty, and it is impossible to 
say just what spot in "God's Acre" covers what little is left of the 
progenitor of this branch of Gottfried's descendants. 

But if the Freysville cemetery failed to yield what would have 
been irrefutable proof of the identity of the three Adams, it furnished 
evidence through a modest little slab, nearly entirely sunk in the 
ground, that was almost, if not quite, as convincing, and which, taken

in connection with all the other circumstances, finally and completely 
dispelled any doubt on the subject. A crumbliti^- piece of slate, in 
characters barely decipherable, set forth the death of Keg^ina, 
daughter of Adam Frey, on Aug. 12, 1803, aged 12 years, 10 
months. 2 weeks and i day. A calculation showed her to have been 
born on Sept. 17. 1790, which did not agree with the date which 
the writer had copied from the church records, and it was thought 
that perhaps the amateur engraver had made a mistake in his cal- 
culations, but four years afterward, as this matter was prepared for 
the printer, a second reference showed that the date copied by the 
wiiter was that of her baptism, which occurred a little more than a 
month after her birth. 

Just one more citation, and we will treat the question of 
identity as absolutely settled. Phoebe Neff, a granddaughter of 
Adam, says that her mother's family name was Mielhof. The wit- 
nesses to the baptism of Adam's oldest son were Philip and Regina 
Mielhof. which explains where Adam's second daughter received 
her baptismal name. This same Phoel>e remembers that in her 
childhood days there were Freys residing along the Plank Road 
near York and on streets entering the town who were distant rela- 
tives of hers. Children of 1923 Charles Fry and 1925 Fmanuel 
Fry speak of traditions that they were related to descendants of 
16 George Frey, while a reciprocal feeling has been expressed by 
the latter's descendants, but it has remained for the writer to clearly 
show just how this connection exists. 

Take all these facts and traditions together and the conclusion 
that Gottfried's Adam went back to the countn,^ of his uncles and 
cousins is irresistible, and he who is still skeptical could not be 
convinced though one rose from the dead. 

Adam's Life and Death. 
Very little can be said of the story of this man's life. Born on 
August 14, 1760, he doubtless worked on his fathers' farm until 
such time as he was apprenticed to learn the weaving trade^. Too 
9Deed Book CC 22. 



242 ADAM FREY. 

young to enlist with his brother George, his first military service 
seems to have occurred in 1781, when, from June 12 to 20, he was a 
member of a militia company which convoyed British prisoners 
from York to Reading^''. From July 8 to Sept. 8 of the same year 
he was a member of Peter Ford's company, according to the same 
authority. This is all the record obtainable of his military service. 

Just when he married Anna Mary Mielhof is unknown, but, 
judging from the birth of Henry, his second child, in 1787, he was 
probably unmarried at the time of his father's death, but married 
before the execution of the deed to Stake. Phoebe Neff says her 
grandparents came from Maytown, Lancaster county ; but as Adam 
was living in York township in 1781 when he was a militiaman, 
and was already married in 1783 and living in York, it is evident 
that if anybody came from Lancaster county it was the Mielhofs, 
for Philip, one of the witnesses to Henry's baptism in York county, 
was himself the father of a child baptised soon after by the same 
pastor^^. 

Adam first appears on the assessment books of Windsor town- 
ship in 1795, and was a farmer therein down to the time of his 
death. His life seems to have been that of the average citizen of 
those days. In religion he followed the faith of his father, being a 
member of the Reformed church at Freysville, while his wife be- 
longed to the Lutheran communion at the same place. 

Just when he died is uncertain. His will is dated April 9, 
1836; but was not probated until July 3, 1846. As he left his 
estate to his wife for life, the difference in these two dates may 
show that the wife survived him during this time or that the will 
was made several years before his death; but the former is the 
more probable supposition. 

It may still be possible that some of the older inhabitants of 
Freysville could point out where Adam Frey is buried. If so, his

i^This story of Phoebe's, however, may explain why no record can be found 
of the baptism of Elizabeth, the oldest daughter. Adam, after the sale of his 
patrimony, may have spent the years from 1783 to 1787, in Maytown, and 
brought the Hielhofs with him on his return to York county.

descendants, ere it is forever too late, should fittingly mark the 
spot of the ancestor who in troublous times and darker days did his 
part in preparing the way for the liberty and civilization of the 
present era. 

His Children. 

The names and dates of birth of the children of Adam and 
Anna Mary, as hereinafter given, were found in baptismal records 
or on tombstones, except in the case of Elizabeth, of whom neither 
record nor monument can be found. 

While AdaiTi's signature, most intelligibly written to his will, 
shows that he used the "e," some of his descendants lapsed into the 
"Pry-' spelling of the name. It is herein spelled "FTey," unless 
where there is positive proof that the shorter and corrupt form was 
used by the bearers thereof.

ARLY in his search the writer found this entry in the records 
of Zion Reformed Church, under the head of marriages: 
Mar. 1 6, 1806. John Hershner — EHzabeth Frey, 

This was made a note of, and allowed to slum.ber for some 
time while the work of connecting George with Gottfried was more 
vigorously pursued. But in genealogical research, as in all the other 
pursuits of life, variety always adds to the interest of the work, and 
when apparently insurmountable obstacles arise in one line it is 
well to turn to another branch and continue the pursuit of the elusive 
descendants, both living and dead, for often the former are as un- 
communicative from choice as the latter are of necessity. By this 
change the mind appears to regain acumen to finally discover the 
hidden things which at first seemed to defy discover}'. 

It was during a period when the question of one or two Georges 
seemed incapable of positive determination, and when the writer 
was uncertain whether he was a descendant of the founder ot Freys- 
town, that the problem of the identification of the ninth child of that 
estimable gentleman was taken up, as previously related. The will 
of 19 Adam Frey named Elizabeth Hershner as one of his daughters, 
and 1983 Solomon Frey stated that the children of Elizabeth 
Hershner, of Cross Roads, were his cousins. 

In the absence of any positive information, the writer has placed 
Elizabeth as the oldest of Adam's children, for the reason that her 
oldest child was born in 1807, while the first child of Henry was not 
born until 1808. Again, Adam Frey was married at the time he 
executed the deed for his share of his father's estate in 1783, and 



ELIZABETH— LYDIA— MARGARET. 245 

as Henry was not born until \yH6, it is very probable that Elizabeth 
was the child born between the time of marriage and the birth of 
Henry. 

The Ilershncr. (or Hershinger, as Elizabeth's father-in-law 
seems to have written it') family were early settlers of Windsor 
township. Lorentz Hershner died there in 1779. and John Hershner 
moved to Hopewell township and died there in 1814, doubtless early 
in life, as he left only a son John anrl widow Catharine to survive 
him. John succeeded to the family acres, and it was there that 
Elizabeth reared her six children. Through the misfortune or dis- 
honesty of a close friend, for whom John became surety, much of 
the original domain was lost, but John's widow declared there was 
more than enough land left, and lived in the old homestead until her 
death al)out April 20. 1864,^ when nearly or quite eighty years of 
age.

y2ff\ ^ THIS first son of Adam Frey the writer was able to learn 

 I O but a few facts. According to the records of Zion Re- 

^<jy formed church, he was baptized December i8, 1787; 

according to his tombstone in the church grave yard at 

Shrewsbury, he was born December 3, 1787. 

When he was yet quite young, his fathei bougnt for him a lot 
of ground in Freystown,^ probably as a sort of atonement for the 
50 acres that had so improvidently been sold, but on December 13, 
1808, when Henry became of age, he in turn disposed of the paternal 
provision.^ In this deed Henry writes his name in German, 
**Heinrich Frey;" but some of his descendants unfortunately 
dropped the "e." 

He was married some time in 1807 to Mary Smith, who was 
born August 17, 1790, and died July 22, 1857. Most of their 
married life was spent in Shrewsbury township, where Henry 
carried on the trade of coopering, and where he finally died January 
30> 1859. 

As previously stated,' the will of Adam Frey gave the names 
of his surviving children. Solomon Frey said that his uncle Henry 
lived in Shrewsbury township. The assessment books showed a 
Heniy Frey m that township, and the writer had a recollection that 
in his youth he had heard of Freys living in the township related

OVED, doubtless, by a desire to perpetuate the name of 
his sister-in-law, Adam gave his second daughter a 
name quite uncommon at that time and in that com- 
munity. Not for many years, however, was the name 
destined to be heard, for born Septeml:)er 17, 1790. Regina passed 
away August 12, 1803. How her name proved an irrefutable fact 
in showing the connection of Adam with Gottfried has already been 
related. 

Her tombstone, a rapidly disappearing piece of slate in the 
old cemetery at Freysville, York County, is the only one the writer 
ever saw which, in giving the age of the deceased, stated it in years, 
months, weeks and days.

ANIEL, the second son of Adam Frey, having left no de- 
scendants, there was scarcely any one from whom any- 
thing of his life's story could be learned. He was born 
September 9, 1793, this fact being evidenced both from 
the records of Zion Reformed Church and from the tombstone in 
a private burying ground near Landis' mill, in Springetsbury 
township, that marks his last resting place. How the correspondence 
of these two records proved a link in the chain identifying Adam 
Frey, of Windsor township, as the son of Gottfried Frey, of York 
township, has already been told. 

Daniel was married, his wife's Christian name being Sarah; 
but they had no children. He was a laborer by occupation, and 
much of his life was spent near the place where he is buried. He 
died March 7, 1859.

EMEMBERING the German custom of calling every boy 
"Hans," "Johannes" or "John," and coupling with it 
another name as a distinguishing appellative^ Adam 
named this third son John and emphasized it by stopping 
with that. 

John is the man whom an erroneous tradition* represented as 
coming from Berks county and finding work with a Mr. Haines, 
living near Freysville. He may have been employed by Mr. Haines 
and it is true that so favorable an impression did John make that 
he won the affections of Julia Ann Haines, his employer's daughter, 
and reared a large family of sturdy children, proving himself the 
most prolific of Adam's children, and his descendants in number 
are second to Elizabeth's in Adam's line. 

Little can be said of his history. Born on May 17, 179^, he 
married Miss Haines about 1818. followed farming, lived all his 
life in Windsor township and died Dec. 29, 1861. His remains rest 
in the Freysville Cemetery.

IKE HIS father before him, and hke many tathers both 
before and after him, Adam Frey wanted a son bearing 
his own name, and when the sixth child saw the light of 
day, and proved to be a "man-child," it was called Adam. 
But rnan proposes and God disposes, and the young Adam, born 
April 26, 1800, died August 6, 1803, just a few days before his 
elder sister Regina, and possibly of the same malady which cut 
her off just as she was entering her "teens," thus bringing to an 
untimely end the story of the boy who it had been hoped would 
carry his father's name down to succeeding generations. He is 
buried in the family lot in the Freysville cemetery, his tombstone 
furnishing the only information that could be secured concerning 
him. 




197 3ncob ftc^. 



fl ERHAPS this Jacob Frey owes his name to the fact that 
I his uncle, i6 George Frey, had a son named Jacob. Be 
; that as it may, when Adam's wife presented him with his 
seventh child it was duly named after the shrewd and 
sometimes unscrupulous Israelite. Born May 3. 1803, the child 
grew to maturity, being a farmer by occupation. He married Mary 
Musser, who was born September 20, 1809, and, spending the 
greater part of his years in Windsor township, died on February 
28. 1858, and is buried near Yorkana. His wife survived him many 
years, dying February 6, 1891. 

He was the father of ten children, only three of whom reared 
families.

NDAUNTED by the early death of his first Adam, when 
this youngest child of 19 Adam Frey was born, his father 
bestowed on him the paternal name, and the second venture 
proved more propitious. He chose farming as his occupa- 
tion, lived in Windsor township all his life not far from the place 
where he was born, and lies in the churchyard at Freysville, where 
the first Freys that came to this county are buried. As previously 
narrated, he was discovered from being named in his father's will, 
and his family record obtained from the family Bible in the posses- 
sion of Mary Ann Wallick, one of his children. 

He was born May 20, 1807, married Mary Leibenknight, b. 
Dec. 21, 1805, who died November 4, 18S0. Adam survived her a 
few years, dying April 2, 1883.

y4LA/ ERY MEAGRE, indeed, is the record of the daughter for 
fm[i whom Gottfried set aside a marriage portion in his last will^ 
^^ and which portion his executors paid to her mother, be- 
cause when they were ready to rehnquish their trust this 
daughter was still in a state of single blessedness. 

Maria Elizabeth, subsequently named Elizabeth, the tenth child 
of Gottfried and Margaret Frey, was born Nov. 15, 1763, and was 
living a few years after her father's death. More than that the 
writer is unable to tell. There is a record of Elizabeth Frey marry- 
ing John Hershner, but that was a niece and namesake of Gottfried's 
daughter. There is also a record of an Elizabeth Frey marrying 
a Mr. Fishel in 1806, but at that time no Elizabeth was forty-three 
years old, and the presumption of marriage is very weak. 

At any rate, after an intermittent search of four years, the 
writer is compelled to close this page without any further knowledge 
of her or any descendants, if any there were.

COURT HOUSE, YORK, PA., 1840-1900.

(3^p> EAVING the home of his childhood, the County and State 
^j where his grandfather, father and uncle played the part 
^^^ of sturdy pioneers, stoutly resisting the encroachments of 
the wilderness, the saA'age Indians and the civilized land- 
pirates from across the border^, this seventh son of Gottfried de- 
liberately entered the enemy's country and spent the mat.ure years 
of his life as an honest and industrious inhabitant of the Monu- 
mental City. 

The writer has been unable to find any record of Samuel Frey's 
birth. At the time of his father's death he was under age and on 
June II, 1782, when John Herbach was appointed his guardian, the 
petition states that he was seventeen years of age*. On April 4, 
ly'^y^, being then of full age, he received his fifty acres devised to 
him by liis father; in this deed he is described as house carpenter, 
of York tow^iship. On March iq, 1789, he purchased a revisionary 
interest in the Freystown lots from his brother Henry''. On May 
17, 1793, Samuel Frey, "house carpenter, of Baltimore," and Anna, 
his wife, sold some Freystown lots'\ Subsetjucnt conveyances' 
locate him in Baltimore, but the wife's name does net appear in the 
acknowledgement. All of these deeds set forth his relation to Gott- 
fried, leaving no doubt of the fact of the hegira of \n Samuel to 
Baltimore. 

It was the discovery of these deeds that led some of his grand- 
sons to beheve that 167 Samuel Frey came to York from Baltimore,

but they evidently overlooked the fact that the Samuel born in 1791 

could not have made conveyances in the period from 1787 to 1795. 

It will be recalled that the Hiestand tradition is that Julianna 

Frey, in her widowhood, went to her brother in Baltimore', and 
Samuel seems to have been the only son of Gottfried who lived in 
the Monumental City. 

When reference is made to the Baltimore records the result is 
ambiguous, to say the least. Samuel Frye, carpenter and joiner, 
leased some ground in Howard's addition to the city and made some 
conveyances of parts thereof, at various times between Dec. 3, 1796, 
the date of purchase, and May 8, 1848. The name is written Frey 
and Frye, indiscriminately. 

Finally on April 29, 1853, a Samuel Frey devises his estate to 
his wife Belinda, and his son John, In the sale of his property there 
is mentioned a lot of "cabinet ware." 

If the last named party is Gottfried's Samuel he lived to the 
ripe age of 88 years. Also, he must have had two wives, as the 
early deed names Anna and the last will gives Belinda as his wife's 
name. The York church records show three children borrx to Samuel 
and Anna, all before the rem.oval to Baltimore : 
Elizabeth, b. Aug. 25, 1789. 
Samuel, b. May 23, 1791- 
Anna, b. Apr. 17, 1792. 

Perhaps tlie Samuel of the 1853 will was the,son born in 1791. 
At any rate the task of tracing out this line in a large city threatened 
to take more time than the writer could devote to it, and it is left for 
other hands to do this work, if anyone sees fit.

OUNGEST of Gottfried's children, Henry FreV; who was 
fifteen years old at the time of his father's death', has left 
such a scant record that the writer has been unable to find 
^_J any trace of his posterity, if any there were. Receiving 
his patrimony of 50 acres on July 7, 1788^. in a little over a year he 
had disposed of nearly all of it^, including his interest in ground 
rents'', and finally all his interest under his father's wilF. x\ccord- 
ing to one of Samuel's deeds®, Henry became financially involved 
and the Sheriff assisted him in the disposition of his property. There 
was a Henry Frey and wife Barbara who sold a tract of lard in New- 
berry township^, the signature being the German "Heinrich." but 
outside of the identity of the wife's name Barbara, there is nothing 
to show that he was Gottfried's son. 

iSio record of any children of Henry has been found. Tliat he 
was twice married is evidenced by the deed of Sept. t8, 1789, to 
Gottlieb Ziegle^, which gives Susanna as the wife's na.me, and the 
conveyance of Jan. 20, 1791^, which names Barbara as the happy 
helpmeet. 

The deed of Jan. 14. 1790^'', describes Henry as a tanner. An 
assessment book some years later gives a Henry Frey, distiller, in 
York township, and the writer was told by a resident of York that 
he had a recollection of a tract of land, with an old distillery, situate 
south of York, back of the reservoir, which had been owned by a 
Henry Frey, but no record of its conveyance, and no settlement of 
Henry Frey's estate, could be found. The length of time already 
consumed in the preparation of this book, and the number of de- 
scendants of Gottfried who have passed away since the work was 
begun, warns the writer that if he wants to finish it and to deliver it 
to those who have shown the greatest mterest therein no longer 
delay can be tolerated, especially in the absence of any hope of 
further results.

(^(^^ HEN page 304 of this book had gone through tne 

press, and the writer was congratulating himself that 

the end of his labors was in sight, an incident occurred 

which, though delaying publication, cleared up what 

had hitherto been a perplexing mystery and added an important 

branch of Gottfried Frey's progeny to this work. 

The death of a number of cotemporary Freys while this record 
was in preparation showed the writer that, if it was to be read by 
one of the men who had been of much assistance and gave substan- 
tial encouragement thereto, and who was then in his eightieth year, 
further delays were dangerous. So one day the unbound sheets were 
taken to 1632 1 William Frey for his perusal. In conversation the 
writer expressed his regret at having been unable to find any infor- 
mation concerning the children of 164 Elizabeth Frey. although he 
had made many inquiries during the past four years. 

"Why," said the captain, "I can tell you where you can find 
some of them. Go to Lydia Strickler, in Freystown. Her mother 
was Andrew Tyson's wife. When I was a fourteen-year-old lad I 
worked at Tyson's, and she said to me, 'You and I are cousins ; my 
mother was a Frey.' " 

Further inquiry brought forth the assertion that Mrs. Tyson's 
maiden name was Weigel: and while the captain was ignorant of 
the Christian names of Mrs. Tyson's parents, he was certain that 
before her marriage Mrs. Weigel was a Frey and some relative 
of his. 



312 GEORGE FREY. 

Of course, such a clue at least deserved investigation, so within 
a few hours Mrs. Strickler was interviewed. She believed they were 
related to the Freys, but had no knowledge as to how the relation- 
ship was brought about. She referred the writer to Mrs. Gotwalt, 
in whose possession, or in that of one of her sons, was the old Tyson 
Bible. 

The Bible referred to gave the Tyson family complete, includ- 
ing the maiden name of the mother and date of birth ; but it shed no 
light on the Christian names of her parents. From Mrs. Gotwalt 
the writer received the names of Mrs. Tyson's sisters and where 
to find some of their descendants. Jacob Welty furnished a record 
of the birth and whereabouts of Mrs. Hauer and Mrs. Beaverson. 
These two latter were positive about the Frey connection, Mrs. 
Hauer stating that 1673 Israel Frey was a first cousin of her 
mother's, a statement which could only be correct if Mrs. Weigel 
was 164 Elizabeth Frey; but while both, after suggestion, thought 
the grandfather's name was ]\lichael, neither was at all positive 
about it. 

It remained for Mrs. Leader, another grandchild, to say, with- 
out previous suggestion, that the grandparents' names were Michael 
and Elizabeth. Taken in connection with the fact that Cassandra, 
Rebecca and Jacob (a brother who moved West) were born after 
the time given by the church records as the date of Elizabeth's birth, 
and the positive claim of relationship, the writer believed himself 
safe in treating these people as descendants of Elizabeth Frey. 

But it was through the history of a third Weigel girl that the 
element of uncertaint}'- was entirely removed. All of the grand- 
children above named spoke of an elder sister named Eliza, who 
according to Mrs. Hauer was eight or ten years older than her 
mother, and who had at least one child living in Wrightsville. To 
this child, Mrs. Samis, the writer repaired, and there he was shown 
a family record of the Seyples, in which appeared this entry : 

Elizabeth Weigel, born Dec. 14, 1804. 



ELIZABETH— ELJZABK'I II— JACOB. 313 

An entry exactly agreeing with thai dii page 180, the church 
records above referred to. 

Thus, Ixiyond perad venture, was revealed the line of Elizaheth 
Frey's descendants. Susan evidently died in her youth, since the 
grandchildren, knew nothing of her. The son, Jacob, moved to 
Erie, and in the limited time remaining, nothing couUl Ixi found of 
his descendants. 

Elizabeth's last days seem to have been rather sad. It is uncer- 
tain whether she died before or after her husband ; but there is a 
tradition that her children had both stepfather and stepmother, and 
i:ure it is that in early life they were "bound out" I0 neighlx)rs. She 
died in an old house in what was known as the "Alms House 
Woods" in Springetsbury township; but where her remains are 
interred is unknown. 

It is with a feeling of deep satisfaction that the w^riter presents 
this partial list of her descendants :

Iprospectus 



It is with crreat pleasure that the author announces the com- 
pletion of the "Frey" book, a work be^un just five years ago, and 
which has far outgrown its original purpose. 

The book gives the ancestry of (xottfried r'rey, who arrived 
in this country in 1727, tracing his descent from Kasper Frey, 
born in Udorf, Switzerland, 1605. It shows his settlement in 
York county, his laying out of Freystown, now the 12th Ward of 
York, his career and possessions, his family and death. 

Gottfried was the father of twelve children, five sons and 
two daughters reaching maturity. The descendants of four of 
these are given down to the beginning of 1913, with accounts of 
how they were discovered and identified. 

The book contains 332 pages, 6x9 inches of te.xt, a specimen 
page being given herewith, printed on heavy antique paper, and 72 
portraits, printed on extra strong enameled book, together with a 
score of other illustrations. It is bound in buckram, and is sold 
at the nominal price of ^2.00^0 which must l)e added carriage 
from York, Pa. A single copy costs 25 cents postage to any 
part of the United States. 

The book is believed to be the best value for the price of any 
genealogical work yet published. 

The edition is limited and when exhausted cannot be dupli- 
cated; to be sure of a copy it is well to order at once. 

By permission reference is made to the York County National 
Bank as to the publisher's integrity.
